(Town of Duck)

The town of Duck has announced its tentative beach nourishment schedule this summer.

Here are the current details.

Weeks Marine, the dredging contractor for the 2022 beach nourishment, has informed us of a tentative schedule for construction in Duck. At this time, the company anticipates working in Duck beginning in early to mid-August with a projected completion of late August or early September.

This schedule remains tentative and is subject to various factors including weather conditions and unforeseen delays. As the project progresses towards Duck, we will provide updates from the contractors.

Follow all beach nourishment updates on our project update page.

    As long as no county funds are used to finance this project I’m ok with it. Duck has no business receiving funding from the county to nourish the beaches, because the TOWN doesn’t provide public access to county tax payers. If I am not allowed to access the beaches in Duck, then don’t use my money there. I won’t even shop in Duck. Spend your money on the towns who provide and maintain access to the public. Nags Head goes as far as putting outhouses at the accesses. Duck writes you a ticket for trespassing.

    You want your beach, get your hand-outs from your own property owners and non resident property owners.

    What are you doing Duck ?
    The crosswalks are poorly lit and a public safety hazard , people get hit ! There is almost 2 million spent on policing , yet no crime , aren’t enough lifeguards , and people drown . The beach is crowded due to many erecting huge tents , the common sense solution to this limited beach space would be to only allow umbrellas and chairs which take up 1/3 the space as the allowable size of tents , While providing adequate shade for the same amount of people.

    Where are the public beach accesses in Duck? I know area business and rentals collect rental and meals taxes that a portion goes to beach replacement. But didn’t the original bill that set this up in the 80’s say something about a town having to maintain public access? Had anyone read it lately? I haven’t.
