Beach nourishment project in Duck delayed until March

In a statement released Friday, March 25, the Town of Duck announced that Weeks Marine would be leaving the Dare County beach nourishment project and would be returning in March to finish the remaining portion within the Town.

Based on a visual inspection, “It is difficult to determine if the project design goal has been achieved,” says Duck officials.

Town Staff has discussed these concerns with Coastal Planning and Engineering and are expected to receive surveys next week to verify that the beach has received the nourishment it should have.

Further updates will be provided as the Town receives the necessary information regarding the status of the project.
