2019 Beach Nourishment Project

The Town will be conducting a beach nourishment maintenance project slated to start in May 2019 and lasting possibly into October 2019. Sand will be placed on 10 miles of beach from the Bonnett Street public beach access at 2919 South Virginia Dare Trail (near Mile Post 11) south to the town line with the National Park Service (near Mile Post 21). 

The Town does not expect to have a schedule for the project until late spring 2019. Even then, the schedule will likely change often as weather conditions and other issues arise. More than one section of the beach could be impacted during the project. Progression of the project will likely not be linear, meaning that it won't necessarily start at one end of the project area and proceed straight to the other end. 

Dune stabilization measures such as sprigging and fencing will also be included in the project.
