The Town of Nags Head reported last Friday that four bids have been received for the upcoming beach renourishment project.

According to the town’s officials, the bids were submitted from Dutra Group, Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company (GLDD), Manson Construction Company, and Weeks Marine.

Based on the bid items submitted by each bidder, the town’s beach nourishment engineering firm, Coastal Science & Engineering, Columbia, South Carolina, evaluated the bids by the total cost for placing 3.73 million cubic yards of sand on the beach, as well as the total cost of placing 4 million cubic yards of sand on the beach (the permitted maximum quantity),” the town reported.

The total project costs for the Nags Head renourishment project are divided into the town’s portion of 2.3 MCY of beach fill placement or $25.5M total project budget and the FEMA restoration portion of 1.43 MCY  beach fill placement or $16.2M project estimate.

Approximately 50% of the town’s total project budget will be funded for the Dare County Beach Nourishment Fund (~$12.5M).
