Buxton Beach Fill: Arrival of Second Dredger Delayed

Dare County yesterday announced the latest update on their Buxton Beach Nourishment Project, saying that Weeks Marine has worked intermittently over the last few days, as marine conditions allowed.

“With Hurricane Gert forecasted to pass offshore, high waves are expected today and tomorrow. Weeks Marine is closely monitoring the weather,” said the county.

Once the scheme resumes, work will continue in the section of beach just north of Buxton for approximately twenty four hours of pumping and then work will proceed south from the subline towards the village of Buxton.

The second subline for a hopper dredger was laid on Friday, August 11, approximately 5,000 feet north of the original subline.

“The arrival of a hopper dredger has been delayed and the anticipated arrival date will be announced once the updated mobilization plan has been determined,” according to the county.
