Buxton Beach Nourishment Resumes

The Buxton Beach nourishment project resumed yesterday just around 4:00 p.m. after brief shut down, reports the County of Dare.

The beach operations were closed on Friday morning, July 29, due to rough sea conditions.

According to Weeks Marine, construction is now moving to the south and has approached the north end of Buxton.

The county also announced that rough sea conditions forecasted for Friday, August 4th may lead to another delay over the weekend.

Weeks Marine estimates that if the current forecast holds, sea conditions will allow them to work for approximately four days over the coming week.

At this point, approximately 22% of the project has been completed.
