Beach nourishment at Emerald Isle VIDEO
The Town of Emerald Isle, NC, has just released a video update on the Bogue Inlet dredging and beach nourishment project.
The project, which kicked off on January 1, 2024, is being coordinated by the Army Corp of Engineers and Carteret County.
Currently, the Army Corps contractor is dredging approximately 200,000 cubic yards out the ICWW crossing at Bogue Inlet. The dredge spoil material is being beneficially used to nourish the beach at the Point in Emerald Isle.
The sand will be placed starting 1,500 linear feet from the inlet and run East down the beach until the project is completed, somewhere near the Doe Dr.
The project is anticipated to take up to six weeks to complete. The targeted completion for the project is mid-February 2024.
