Erosion Repairs at Snow’s Cut

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Wilmington District, is urging the public to stay clear of construction along portions of Snow’s Cut for safety reasons as repairs for bank erosion get underway.

The Wilmington District has awarded this $1.8 million contract to Civil Works Contracting to repair erosion damage in three areas of Snow’s Cut worsened last year as a result of Hurricane Matthew.

Two locations are on the north and south side and east of the Snow’s Cut Bridge, and one is near the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission boat launch. Snow’s Cut, a federally authorized part of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, provides mariners a direct route from Carolina Beach to the Cape Fear River.

For safety reasons, the portion of the Carolina Beach Recreational Trail from near the boat launch facility up to Bridge Barrier Road will be closed to the public until that portion of the project is completed,” said Wilmington District Navigation Program Project Manager Jim Medlock. “We ask that the public stay away from the construction area so that we can repair the eroded Snow’s Cut banks safely and as quickly as possible.”

Medlock anticipates that the contractor will likely close the recreational trail starting on or about December 1. The Corps estimates that repairs will continue through spring of 2018.
