NEWPORT, Ore. - Agate Beach remains open, state parks officials say.
Just stay off the dock.
Beachcombers spotted the dock floating offshore on Monday. The structure has since washed ashore Monday and is sitting at the high tide line, Oregon Parks and Recreation Department staff said.
The dock will be marked with warning signs and tape advising the public to stay clear of the structure, which could shift and move at high tide as waves come ashore.
The dock is 7 feet tall, 19 feet wide and 66 feet long. Parks staff said that, while made of concrete and metal, the structure was clearly designed to float.
However, there is no indication the structure crossed the ocean.
