[ARCHIVED] Beach Restoration 2022

Beach Restoration 2022

A beach restoration project is taking place this summer on the beach between 8031 South Old Oregon Inlet Road (Comfort Inn South) near Mile Post 16 and 10435 South Old Oregon Inlet Road near Mile Post 21.

*Oceanfront properties and public beach accesses along South Virginia Dare Trail will NOT be impacted by the project.

A construction progress map will be updated daily during the project to provide the latest beach closure information. 

July 23, 2022 Schedule Update

Construction began on Friday, July 22 near 10011 South Old Oregon Inlet Road in south Nags Head. Over the next 7-10 days, construction will move south to the south end of the project area at 10435 South Old Oregon Inlet Road. 

Once the first section is complete, construction will return to the area near 10011 South Old Oregon Inlet Road and move north to about 9405 South Old Oregon Inlet Road over 5-7 days, where construction will cease until mid-to-late August

In mid-to-late August, a second dredge will arrive and construction will begin 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 and proceed north to near 8645 South Old Oregon Inlet Road. This phase of construction should be completed by the end of August or the beginning of September. 

Construction will then begin near 8407 South Old Oregon Inlet Road and proceed south to near 8645 South Old Oregon Inlet Road. Then, construction will return to near 8407 South Old Oregon Inlet Road and progress north to 8031 South Old Oregon Inlet Road, which is the northern end of the beach restoration project area.

Beach Access and Lifeguard Stand Changes Due to Beach Restoration 

*The Gulfstream public beach access will be used for equipment staging and will be closed to both pedestrian and vehicular traffic from about mid-August through early September 2022. 

**The Juncos public beach access will be used for equipment staging and will be closed to both pedestrian and vehicular traffic from mid-July through early August 2022. In addition, the lifeguard stand at Juncos will be relocated temporarily to the Jacob Street access while the Juncos access is closed.

***The lifeguard stand at the Limulus Street beach access will be relocated temporarily to the Oregon Street access due to the location of a submerged pipeline for the Dredge Ellis Island near the Limulus access.
