Sections of Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head will be closed for regular maintenance on the wind turbines beginning Monday.

Large fall zones underneath each wind turbine must be closed to the public for safety reasons.

Conducting safe wind turbine maintenance is heavily dependent on weather conditions, according to pier Director Mike Remige.

“There is also a strong desire to complete the work before the peak of hurricane season in early to mid-September,” Remige said. “This way, we can avoid any further wear-and-tear on the wind turbines from extreme weather events.”
