Beach Nourishment

Posted on: April 26, 2019

[ARCHIVED] April 26, 2019 Beach Nourishment Update

More Beach to Love

Nags Head's beach nourishment is now underway with the arrival of the Dredge Ellis Island on pumping sand onto the beach just south of Limulus Street in south Nags Head, near Mile Post 20.5.

The project will move south towards the southern project terminus near Mile Post 21 (at the town/National Park Service line). Once this area has been completed, operations will turn north from near Pelican Street and begin progressing 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 -  Parking at the Juncos and Forrest Street beach accesses will be closed for the duration of the project, which is slated to last 90-120 days. However, pedestrian access will still be permitted.

We will keep you updated on construction progress changes.
