Beach Nourishment Update- May 25, 2017

On May 25, 2017, Great Lakes Dredge and Dock (GLDD) reported that they intend to make a small alteration to the schedule for the Liberty Island Dredge. The dredge has begun work at the Widgeon Dr. subline and will continue progress North for a few days for a shorter but undetermined distance. The shore pipeline will then be flipped and they will work to the southern boundary of the project zone to the end of the taper. Upon completion of the taper, GLDD will assess whether to finish the originally planned Northern section with the Liberty Island, or allow The Dodge and Padre Island dredges to finish the section. Please see the project maps on the Town of Duck website for an illustrated view of the schedule.

The Dodge and Padre Island dredges are still on schedule to begin work at the Ocean Bay Blvd. subline when they arrive on sight by the end of May.
