First Section of Newly Constructed Beach Complete

The Town of Duck announced on Saturday, May 27, that the nourishment works on the first 200 feet of newly constructed beach are complete.

Great Lakes Dredge and Dock (GLDD) dredge Liberty Island is now working South with an active construction zone of around 500 feet between 147 and 157 Bufflehead Rd., reported the town.

The town also announced that GLDD’s second dredge, the Dodge Island, has arrived on the site and is pumping sand in the northern section of the project zone near the Ocean Bay Blvd subline.

During the project over 1,061,000 yd³ of sand will be taken from offshore sand sources and pumped onto the beach.

The beach nourishment work is scheduled for completion before the end of July.
