The Town of Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, has received a federal permit to build a 750-foot terminal groin, the town said in its latest announcement. 

The project will consist of the construction of a 750 linear feet terminal groin structure, which includes a 300 linear foot anchorage system.

The 3,214 foot section of shoreline located directly west of the terminal groin (Fillet) will be pre-filled with 264,000 cubic yards of beach compatible material dredged from Shallotte Inlet.

This project will be located off of East Third Street on the beachfront and within the Atlantic Ocean On Ocean Isle Beach.

Ocean Isle Beach will now proceed with the preparation of final plans and specifications in order to put the project out for bid and select a contractor.

It is anticipated that construction of the groin will begin in November 2017.
