BEACH NOURISHMENT PROJECT BIDS UPDATE – FEBRUARY 16, 2016

Town of Duck Statement – February 16, 2016

Bids for the Duck, Kill Devil Hills and Kitty Hawk Beach Nourishment Project were received on February 9, 2016. Bids were provided by three contractors and all three bids exceeded the funding available for the project and were rejected. Work is being done to ensure a contract will be signed as planned prior to June 30, 2016—the end of the current fiscal year. We are working on a comprehensive update explaining the decision to reject the bids, and the details of the reissue of the Request For Bid.  This update will be posted on the Town of Duck website by the end of the week and we will provide a similar notice when it is available.
