The future of the Hatteras Island Fishing Pier in Frisco is unclear this summer as the owner struggles with expensive repairs that must be made to the aging structure.
The pierâ€™s owner, Tod Gaskill, says he is working on trying to get it open and on getting funding for repairs.
Mike Murray, superintendent of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, says he wants to see the pier open again and he wants to keep it open to the public.
â€œWe had a conversation with Tod and his wife Angie, trying to work through the problem,â€ Murray said. â€œWeâ€™re certainly interested in opening it and keeping it open to the public.â€
However, he said, finding funding sources from the Park Service or other public agencies is problematic since the pier is privately owned.
Meanwhile, the pier remains empty and boarded up, prompting questions from islanders and visitors about its future.....................

From what I saw last week its going to be a while before its opened assuming they want to open it. Nothing was being done and it was in bad shape. There is no way you could open the doors and let people out there its falling down basically in some sections.
I stay on Tides Edge, across the street from the Quarter Deck every year with the family. It was a short walk on the beach to the pier. It was odd not having it open and just seeing it falling apart. I noticed a few other businesses that seemed to be hit by the bad economy also.

Just got back.
There's almost nothing left. A large section fell during Hurricane Earl, and it is a wickedly mangled mess. NPS has no hope that it will ever re-open according to 2 Rangers at the Lighthouse
