Cape Hatteras National Seashore recently made structural improvements to the Avon Fishing pier, which is owned by the National Park Service. Koru Village, Inc. has a concession agreement to operate the pier.
The $59,865 project was awarded to Seres Engineering & Services, LLC from Charleston, S.C.
As part of the project, Seres Engineering & Services LLC installed eight new cross brace members between existing pilings under the pier house. The cross bracing is designed to improve the structural integrity of the pier house. In addition to the cross bracing, Seres Engineering & Services LLC performed an inspection to evaluate the depth that the pier house pilings are in the ground.
All on-site work has been completed. The contractor is currently in the process of compiling all of the survey information they collected. Once finished, they will recommend ways to further improve the fishing pier.
