The County of Dare (NC) yesterday released an update on the Buxton Beach Nourishment Project.

The update said that the hopper dredge R.N. Weeks was able to operate about 75% of the time over the past week and completed 52 loads.

Weeks Marine reported that almost 1.4 million cubic yards of sand has been placed on the beach or about 53% out of the project total 2,600,000 cubic yards. The completed section of beach is expected to open to the public by the end of the week.
