Island Free Press: “Miss Katie” dredge nears completion, and prepares for her Outer Banks arrival

July 8th, 2022

The “Miss Katie” dredge is nearing completion, with sea trials scheduled to begin on July 18, followed by a long journey from a Louisiana construction site to her new home on the Outer Banks.

A project that has been in the works since 2016, the Miss Katie dredge will be able to operate in both Oregon and Hatteras Inlets up to 12 hours a day, and will be a county-managed resource to continually keep both inlets open.
