According to the announcement, Weeks Marine has continued to move north from the Dianne Street subline since beach nourishment construction began last week, with the active construction zone between Port Trinitie and Sound Sea Avenue.

Also, a beach nourishment update meeting will be open to the public on Thursday, April 20 at 1:30 p.m. in the Paul F. Keller Meeting Hall to provide more updates on the project and answer questions from the public.

The Duck beach project includes nourishment of approximately 1.6 miles of shoreline from the Army Corps Pier north to Skimmer Way at a construction cost of $7.4 million.

Construction was originally slated to begin last November, but the project was delayed due to equipment issues, minor weather- related delays, etc.
