Sand Fencing and Sprigging Project in Beach Restoration Area (South Nags Head) Begins December 5
Starting Monday, December 5, 2022, a Town of Nags Head contractor will be installing sand fencing and planting American beach grass sprigs on oceanfront properties in south Nags Head. The properties on which sand fencing and sprigging will be placed selectively in those that received sand as part of this past summer’s beach restoration project, from 8031 through 10435 South Old Oregon Inlet Road.
The work should take about two weeks to be completed, weather permitting.
Sand fencing and beach plantings are a natural method that helps stem coastal erosion and flooding by trapping sand to build protective dunes.
If you have any questions about the project, please contact Town Engineer David Ryan at David.Ryan@NagsHeadNC.gov.
