The pilot submitted a written report to the NTSB dated September 27, and reported that shortly after landing, he was cleared to taxi the airplane to the northeast parking area via taxiway Alpha. He reported that while traveling northbound on the taxiway he encountered an airplane that was traveling southbound on the same taxiway. In an effort to avoid the oncoming (southbound) airplane, he maneuvered the airplane to the easterly edge of the taxiway and inadvertently collided with the temporary construction fence.
