Beach Nourishment Update- June 15, 2017

The Dodge and Padre Islands have completed pumping from the Ocean Bay Blvd subline and are now back at the Dianne St. subline working north to meet the completed work. Please be aware that the Ocean Bay Blvd subline is still present in the water and fenced off. GLDD will begin demobilizing this subline soon to move it to Kill Devil Hills. The current construction zone for the Dodge and Padre Islands is between approximately Mallard Dr. and 101 Bufflehead. The pad has already been constructed so they could immediately begin pumping north.

The Liberty Island continues working south to the end of the taper and anticipates being finished by sometime tomorrow, June 16. At that time, they will switch the shore pipe and use the Widgeon St. subline to begin working north until it is ready to mobilize to Kill Devil Hills. This construction area remains the same from approximately Spyglass and Spindrift Ln. Sand ramps have been constructed over the shore pipe in the completed area to maintain access to the water.
