Pirates Cove Greenway Improvements: Boardwalk Replaced and Shifted
After getting an estimated 20 years out of the timber boardwalk at Pirates Cove Greenway, the Town of Cary, NC decided it was time for a change.
While the decking seemed to be in decent shape for public use, the timber railing had deteriorated over time. With the boardwalk's worn headers and stringers, as well as a widened stream channel that was impacting the concrete pier foundations, the Town of Cary opted to remove the entire structure and start from scratch.
The new PermaTrak boardwalk is positioned further away from the stream channel to avoid an existing sewer line and to account for the stream's movement and expansion over time.
