The 1,046’ ft. concrete structure is a remaining section of the former 1963 Herbert C. Bonner Bridge, which was intentionally left intact to serve as an observation and fishing pier.
There is no fee to visit the pier, and the pier is now open to the public 24 hours a day. The site includes port-a-potties, a dumpster, and ample parking, although visitors should watch for continued construction activity and signage that indicates closed areas.
Rules for using the new pier can be found at the entrance to the Bonner Bridge Pier and on Cape Hatteras National Seashore’s Bonner Bridge Pier webpage.
A valid North Carolina Coastal Recreational Fishing License is required to fish from the pier.
