Beach Nourishment Project Schedule

April 1, 2016 Update

At a special meeting held March 17, the Dare County Board of Commissioners, on behalf of the Town of Duck, Kitty Hawk, and Kill Devil Hills, accepted the bid, totaling $38,520,850, from Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company for the beach nourishment project that encompasses the three municipalities.   Yet to be completed include:  obtaining approval from the North Carolina Local Government Commission, which is expected sometime in May 2016;  receiving a biological opinion from National Marine Fisheries; and, an agreement with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management.  

Once these and final financing steps are taken, work is tentatively scheduled to begin in April 2017 in the Town of Duck, progressing south to Kill Devil Hills’ beaches between the months of August and October 2017.
