Beach Nourishment

[ARCHIVED] April 26, 2019 Beach Nourishment Update

More Beach to Love

Great Lakes Dredge and Dock, the Town's dredging contractor for the project, has installed a sub-line (the submerged pipe through which sand is pumped from a dredge offshore up unto the beach) at station 975, which is just south of Limulus Street and just north of Pelican Street in south Nags Head, near Mile Post 20.5.

On May 1, they will begin construction in this area and will be progressing south towards the southern project terminus near Mile Post 21 (at the town/National Park Service line). Once they have completed this area, they will then turn north from the sub-line near Pelican Street and begin professing north towards Outer Banks Pier and then towards Jennette's Pier. 

They are working to install another sub-line at the north end of town, between Conch Street and Hollowell Street near Mile Post 11.5, so that they can begin construction in mid May and progress north to Mile Post 11 first, before moving south from the sub-line near Conch Street. 

NOTE - The public beach accesses at Juncos Street and Forrest Street will be closed for the duration of the project, which is slated to last 90-120 days. 

We will keep you updated on construction progress changes.
