The Nags Head beach nourishment project has finished! Check out this time lapse video of the construction from the Town of Nags Head as it neared Outer Banks Pier from August 9-11, 2019.
The Town of Nags Head sends a big thank you to all who were impacted by this project. We appreciate your patience and your understanding of how critical a healthy beach is to our town and its future.
Demobilization is taking place with equipment being hauled off the beach at the Gulfstream public beach access just south of Jennette’s Pier near Mile Post 16.5. The access will be closed to vehicles, but not pedestrians, until August 27, 2019. The Forrest Street public beach access near Mile Post 15.5 also remains closed to parking, but pedestrian access is still available.
FYI-sand fencing and vegetative sprigging is being installed over the length of the project area on the east side of the dunes, but there is little impact to beach visitors.
Also, a shout out to all who worked the project, including staff at Coastal Science and Engineering and Great Lakes Dredge and Dock. Thank you for your focus on safety and expediency!
