    This is to replace the existing Oak Island Pier, right ? Will it be in the same location? Are they going to demolish the old pier first?

    Sounds like they are going to demolish and rebuild:

    The Town of Oak Island sent a news release today, stating they understand how important the Oak Island Pier is to the community. Their first priority is safety, so they closed the Fishing Pier until further notice. The restaurant and tackle shop will remain open.

    As Mayor Cin Brochure told us last week, they are actively looking for grants and any other possible funding the town can use to rebuild the pier.

    The town says they have already started the CAMA application process for a new pier.

    The town say the pier will not be open for the summer and fall seasons, but their goal is to have a new timber pier completed by the spring of 2018.

    Another source confirming: The new pier is set for completion by spring 2018. The existing pier will be dismantled in sections, and the new pier will be built piece-by-piece as the old one is taken down.

    Sounds like the lawyers and insurance companies are the only ones winning, as usual.

    When I was down about a month ago if you looked closely you could see it swaying with the tide.
