Completion of Buxton Beach Nourishment Set for February 2018
During the November 6th Dare County Board of Commissioners’ meeting, staff from Coastal Science Engineers (CSE) presented an update regarding the Buxton Beach Nourishment Project.
According to latest project update, due to an upcoming weather event and industrial equipment issues, Weeks Marine pulled their hopper dredger R.N. Weeks to Norfolk yesterday for mechanical repairs and to refuel.
The dredger will return once weather conditions improve and repairs and refueling are complete.
To date, 46% of the project has been completed.
The Buxton Beach Nourishment Project will not be finished until at least mid-February, CSE said in their update.
