Lockwood Folly Inlet Dredging Complete

The Lockwood Inlet Association has announced that the Lockwood Folly Inlet Dredging project for Spring is complete.

The Army Corps hopper dredge Currituck arrived on the site in mid-February to finish this 14 day dredging cycle.

According to the Association, “for the first time in several years our inlet has a good navigable channel. It has been quite a journey to say the least.”

This is a huge win for our community, Brunswick County, and the state of North Carolina. We would like to thank those who really worked hard and put time into making this happen,” added the Lockwood Inlet Association.

The project included clearing the navigation channel to its authorized width and depth—about 150 feet wide by 12 feet deep—and placing over 100,000 cubic yards of beach-quality sand on Holden Beach.

The state of NC shallow draft inlet fund which is supplemented by boater registration fees will pay for 2/3 of this project. The county and Holden Beach would be responsible for the remainder.
