Update on Beach Nourishment Project Schedule 



The Town of Kill Devil Hills has received the following updated schedule for the beach nourishment projects that will be conducted this summer in the Towns of Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, and Kill Devil Hills by Great Lakes Dredge and Dock company. 

Nourishment operations in Duck are anticipated to begin around May 20th.   In Kill Devil Hills, the project is still scheduled to begin in early August.  This is still a tentative schedule and subject to change.  As Kill Devil Hills’ project gets closer, we will request representatives of the dredging company and engineering firm(s) provide an update for the Board of Commissioners and once that is finalized we will let you all know as soon as possible. 

The updated May 2017 schedule provided by Great Lakes is summarized in the table below.  As always, this is still an estimated construction schedule for planning purposes and is subject to change.
