After a winter of various repairs and updates, the Rodanthe Fishing Pier will reopen for the 2023 season on Saturday, April 1, per a recent update.
There has been a wave of improvements at the Rodanthe Pier over the past few years, which includes a new ramp that was installed in 2020, and a number of structural repairs that were necessary after various nor’easters, including a November 2021 storm that led to severe damage at the end of the pier.
“[This year], we made some structural repairs to the end of the pier and replaced some deck boards,” stated Terry Plumblee, pier owner and manager. “[We] also updated our lights with LED lighting.”
Once open, the pier’s scheduled hours will be from 7:00 a.m. until dark.
