Staging has begun in the Town of Duck for the first stage of the beach nourishment projects in the towns of Duck, Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills.
According to Dare County (NC), the Duck Beach Nourishment project is anticipated to begin dredging operations around May 20th.
The contractor for the project, Great Lakes Dredge & Dock (GLDD), is now anticipating the use of three dredges (the Liberty Island, the Dodge, and Padre Island), rather than one, for the Town of Duck project.
It is estimated that all three dredges will arrive prior to the end of May, though it is unclear which will arrive first.
GLDD and Coastal Planning & Engineering, contractors for the Town of Duck project, will present project and schedule updates at the Town Council meeting today, May 17, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. in the Paul F. Keller Meeting Hall.
