A new webcam was recently installed at the entrance to the Bonner Bridge Pier, located at the south end of Oregon Inlet, per an update from the Cape Hatteras National Seashore (CHNS).
New images from the webcam are uploaded approximately every 15 minutes to Cape Hatteras National Seashore’s Bonner Bridge Pier webpage at https://www.nps.gov/caha/planyourvisit/bonner-bridge-pier.htm. (Due to the remote location of the webcam, there may be intermittent image upload delays, and times when the camera temporarily goes offline.)
Viewers of the webcam can also navigate through all previously uploaded photos, check out the local weather conditions, (which stems from the Manteo Airport, or just enjoy the views.
The1,046’ ft. Bonner Pier 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 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/or signage that indicates closed areas.
Rules for using the pier, as well as additional information, can also be found on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore’s Bonner Bridge Pier webpage.
