The County of Dare has just released the latest update on the Buxton beach nourishment program, saying that the beachfill work in this area is being put on hold at the moment. 

With rough sea conditions forecasted later this week, Weeks Marine said that that the dredger C.R. McCaskill will travel to Norfolk to ensure safety.

The McCaskill is expected to return during the next week and resume operations by Wednesday, July 12.

“Travel time to Norfolk is approximately two and a half days. While there, the dredge will undergo routine maintenance,” the city said.

Approximately 10% of the project has been completed thus far and the project manager representing Dare County reports that the sand being pumped from offshore is excellent quality.
