Start of Buxton Beach Nourishment Postponed
Weeks Marine, the contractor for the Buxton beach nourishment project, said in its latest update that the first day of pumping has been postponed from the originally projected date of May 21 to sometime within the last week of May.
The starting point for the project, where the offshore pipes connect with the onshore pipes, will be located at the oceanfront approximately 1000 feet north of the northern boundary of the village of Buxton.
Weeks Marine said that the project construction will initially proceed to the north of the starting point.
The whole project is expected to be completed within 90 days under normal conditions – approximately 55 days for the project area north of the starting point and approximately 35 days for the southern portion.
