The Town of Nags Head, North Carolina, released the latest update on their beach nourishment scheme earlier this week, saying that 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).
According to the update, the works 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 reported 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.
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.
