Main Points

  • The Dredge Ellis Island should begin work again late Friday afternoon, May 31, 2019, near Surfside Drive in south Nags Head. Work will progress over the next two weeks towards the Outer Banks Pier at Mile Post 18.5 before leaving the project.
  • The Dredge Liberty Island is quickly progressing north of Nags Head Pier to the Bonnett Street public beach access at 2919 South Virginia Dare Trail. Once there,  the contractor will remove their pipe and place it south of the landing point located just south of the Curlew public beach access. Work will then progress south to the Outer Banks Pier area to tie into the beach already completed by the Dredge Ellis Island. Construction is expected to be complete in late August or early September.  

NOTE -  Parking at the Forrest Street beach access will be closed for the duration of the project. The parking lot at the Juncos Street public beach access is expected to be re-opened in mid to late June. Pedestrian access at both sites is still permitted. Lifeguard stands are in place but may be moved a few feet to accommodate construction traffic.
