Nags Head Beach Nourishment Progressing North

The Town of Nags Head, North Carolina, yesterday (July 16th) presented an update on the current beach nourishment operations.

As reported, the construction has been progressing north from the submerged pipeline located near Mile Post 16 (about the 7100 block of South Virginia Dare Trail, just north of Jennette’s Pier).

However, the subline near Mile Post 15 (about the 5800 block of South Virginia Dare Trail) has been repaired, and, as a result, construction has just returned to the area just south of the Village Beach Club.

The city officials added that work will continue to progress south for approximately another 4,000 feet; after that area has been completed, construction will return back to the subline near Mile Post 16.

As mentioned before, construction progresses 5,000 feet on each side (north and south) of a submerged line that connects to a dredge offshore. Once the construction is complete, work will then move to another submerged line and the process will begin all over again.

Installation of sand fencing and sprigging to stabilize the newly placed sand has started just south of the Juncos Street public beach access. The stabilization project will progress south to the town line at Mile Post 21 and then flip and progress north from Juncos Street.

Completion of the beach nourishment project is set for late August or early September.

Nags Head beach nourishment project is one of the largest locally-funded projects of its kind in the United States. This $34.7 million scheme was awarded to Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation (GLDD) back in 2018.
