Cair Andros refortified (estimated date)

Age: 3rd Age - The Stewards

It was [Túrin II] that built secret refuges for his soldiers in Ithilien, of which Henneth Annûn was the longest guarded and manned. He also fortified again the isle of Cair Andros to defend Anórien.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Gondor and the Heirs of Anárion: The Stewards

Túrin II […] In his time […] But Gondor makes and keeps up secret strongholds there, especially in North Ithilien. The ancient refuge of Henneth Annûn is rebuilt and hidden. The isle of Cair Andros in Anduin is fortified.

The Peoples of Middle-Earth, HoME Vol 12, Part 1, Ch 7, The Heirs of Elendil: The Ruling Stewards of Gondor

[Note: date is estimated from the date given for Henneth Annûn built in The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age, which appears to be a contemporaneous event.]
