A beach restoration project will take place this summer (2022) from 8031 South Old Oregon Inlet Road (Comfort Inn South) near Mile Post 16 south to Nags Head's corporate limits abutting Cape Hatteras National Seashore near Mile Post 21. Oceanfront properties and public beach accesses along South Virginia Dare Trail will not be impacted by the project.
July 8, 2022 Schedule Update
Construction is being delayed due to expected high surf, so the project start may be delayed a few days.
The plan, as it is today, is for construction to begin near 10011 South Old Oregon Inlet Road and proceed south to 10435 South Old Oregon Inlet Road, where the project area ends. Then, construction will return to near 10011 South Old Oregon Inlet Road and proceed north to about 9405 South Old Oregon Inlet Road. This phase of construction should be completed by the end of July or the beginning of August.
In mid August, a second dredge will arrive and construction will resume near 9021 South Old Oregon Inlet Road and progress south to near 9405 South Old Oregon Inlet Road. Then, construction will return to near 9021 South Old Oregon Inlet Road
