2022 Nags Head, NC Beach Restoration Schedule Update
Thank you for subscribing to receive updates regarding our 2022 Hurricane Dorian beach restoration project.
As of March 4, 2022, construction is tentatively scheduled to take place from about August 1 through about August 30, 2022.
Equipment mobilization is expected to begin in mid-July, with de-mobilization expected to take place in September.
Remember, it is likely the schedule will change over the course of the project.
The project will place take place from 8031 South Old Oregon Inlet Road (Comfort Inn South) near Mile Post 16, south through 10435 South Old Oregon Inlet Road (see map).
*Oceanfront properties and public beach accesses along South Virginia Dare Trail will NOT be impacted.
These projects are not linear in nature and due to the size of our project, we may have more than one beach closure area.
Sand is pumped ashore from an offshore dredge via a submerged pipeline. Construction typically proceeds in one direction from the submerged pipe (also known as a landing point) for a few thousand feet and then will proceed in the other direction from the same landing point.
When all work related to a particular landing point and pipeline length is complete, the contractor will temporarily stop pumping sand and relocate the submerged pipeline to a new landing point. Work will then begin all over again.
Once the project begins, the construction schedule map will be updated daily with the latest beach closures.
