The Kitty Hawk portion of the 2022 beach renourishment project is now complete, while work continues to proceed along the Southern Shores oceanfront.
Equipment used on the Kitty Hawk beaches is being moved northward, and a small section of beach near the town’s northern border has limited access until they clear the area.
Approximately 3.97 miles of shoreline from the Southern Shores/Kitty Hawk town line to the Kitty Hawk/Kill Devil Hills line was widened at a cost of $9,638,244.
In Southern Shores, crews with Weeks Marine are pumping sand in two locations: Between 12 and 28 Ocean Boulevard (N.C. 12), and from 176 to 192 Ocean Boulevard.
The other projects in Buxton, Avon, South Nags Head and Kill Devil Hills were completed this summer. Work along the beaches of Duck is scheduled to start by the end of October.
Staging in Duck is expected to begin Wednesday with the installation of the subline near North Snow Geese Drive. The access point to the beach for mobilization of the equipment is in Southern Shores.
