Buxton: Arrival of the Second Dredge Set for September

Weeks Marine cutterhead dredge C.R. McCaskill has finally resumed pumping operations in Buxton, according to the Dare County.

The county announced that pumping resumed Wednesday afternoon around 3 p.m. and that the work in the section of beach just north of the subline has been completed.

Also, crews will flip the pipeline and begin working south towards the village of Buxton. It is expected to take 20 to 24 days of full pumping production to finish the south side of the project from the current landing point,” the county said.

The county advised beach goers to use caution as the work moves through Buxton, “stay out of marked off work zones, and adhere to instructions and signs posted by construction crews on site”.

As reported previously, a second subline for a hopper dredge was installed last Friday approximately 5,000 feet north of the existing subline; however, the arrival of a second dredge was delayed.

Weeks Marine estimates that the hopper dredge R.N. Weeks should arrive and be able to start pumping sand in the second week of September.

At this point, approximately one third of the project has been completed.
