Beach nourishment in Kill Devil Hills began this evening at approximately 6:00 p.m. as the first sand began being pumped onto the beach in the vicinity of the Helga Street ocean access.
We extend our best wishes for a successful project to the Great Lakes Dredge and Dock crews and our engineers from CB&I.
For your safety, please refrain from entering any of the active construction sites and obey all signs posted in the vicinity of the construction sites.
Congratulations to Great Lakes Dredge and Dock and project engineers CB&I - the first sub(merged) line for beach nourishment is in! I’ve attached the following pictures to make them easier for ya’ll to share. The first subline is located landward of the surfline at the Helga Street access, which is the staging area for Kill Devil Hills’ beach nourishment project; a second subline will be installed soon more towards the south end of the project, in the vicinity of Coral and Landing Drives. Additional sublines will be laid as the project progresses.
Equipment mobilization will begin at the Helga Street beach nourishment staging area over this weekend, June 17th and 18th. Motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists: please be vigilant in this area and be prepared for traffic delays.
Beach nourishment sand pumping could begin as early as five days from June 16th at the north end of Kill Devil Hills’ beaches. Equipment mobilization for the duration of the beach nourishment project may be expected daily. It is critically important to remember that this project is fluid. There are no firm dates to provide those wanting to know when beach nourishment is going to be in front of their property, or their rental. When nourishment begins in Kill Devil Hills, daily location updates can be found at the www.morebeachtolove.com website on the interactive map Dare County developed. We will be providing more frequent e-mail updates and/or releases throughout the project.
Regarding diving at the Triangle Wrecks off Second Street, and the surf wreck at the Croatan Surf Club: Beach Nourishment Construction: Wreck Diving Not Recommended And May Be Dangerous. The Town of Kill Devil Hills will be installing warning signs at 1st, 2nd and 3rd Streets stating this message; a notice will be placed on the Town’s Facebook pages, website, and distributed electronically. We are asking your agencies to also share this information. Safety is of critical importance.
If we can be of help, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
This information is not binding and is meant to provide estimated construction times for planning purposes. The beach nourishment start dates are subject to change.
