[ARCHIVED] Sand Fencing and Sprigging Project Taking Place in South Nags Head

FYI on Wood Insta Size

A Town of Nags Head contractor is 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, are 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. 

Not sure if your property will be receiving the sand fencing and sprigging? Check out the sand fencing and beach grass construction plans below. 

If you have any questions about the project, please contact Town Engineer David Ryan at
