A beach restoration project will take place this summer (2022) from 8031 South Old Oregon Inlet Road (Comfort Inn South) near Mile Post 16 south to Nags Head's corporate limits abutting Cape Hatteras National Seashore near Mile Post 21. Oceanfront properties and public beach accesses along South Virginia Dare Trail will not be impacted by the project.
As of March 4, 2022, construction is tentatively scheduled to take place from about August 1 through about August 30, 2022.
Equipment mobilization is expected to begin in mid-July, with de-mobilization expected to take place in September.
Remember, it is likely the schedule will change over the course of the project.
A construction schedule map will be posted on the 2022 Beach Restoration Project web site in the spring of 2022. This map will be updated daily during the project to provide the latest beach closure information.
