Dredge Liberty Island Receiving Repairs in Norfolk

The Town of Nags Head, North Carolina, has presented the latest update on the ongoing beach nourishment operations.

According to the town officials, the dredge Liberty Island departed for Norfolk last evening for repairs.

The vessel is expected to return to work tomorrow morning, June 27, 2019.

Over the last few days, the dredge has continued to make good progress, working in the area north of Nags Head’s Town Hall, near Mile Post 14, the town officials said.

While the dredge is in Norfolk, Great Lakes Dredge and Dock will move construction equipment to a new submerged pipeline located near the Epstein beach access, near Mile Post 14.75.

When the dredge returns, construction should start moving north from this subline to tie into the already nourished beach north of Town Hall, the town officials added.

Once that is completed, construction will turn south from the subline at Epstein for about 5,000 feet, before having to move to another subline located further south near Mile Post 16.

The project is expected to be complete in late August or early September.
