More Beach to Love Video Update on Beach Nourishment
The Town of Duck Beach Nourishment project is anticipated to begin dredging operations around May 20th. Please note that this is still a tentative schedule and is subject to change. Great Lakes Dredge & Dock (GLDD) is now anticipating the use of three dredges (the Liberty Island, the Dodge, and Padre Island), rather than one, for the Town of Duck project. It is estimated that all three dredges will arrive prior to the end of May, though it is unclear which will arrive first.
Additional videos will be posted as they are completed. In the meantime, enjoy watching the progress.

The following video was prepared by the local government entities with beach nourishment projects this year: Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills and Dare County. It provides a great deal of information on the actual process and each location.
Town of Kill Devil Hills historical perspective on efforts to protect KDH beaches and the current project
Learn about steps taken in the 1980s by Kill Devil Hills and private property owners to protect oceanfront structures from being lost to shoreline erosion. Meet former Mayor Lowell Perry, Dare County Commissioner Warren Judge, KDH Planning Director Greg Loy and former Sea Ranch Hotel owner Cliff Blakely in this informative and historical video. Current Mayor Sheila F. Davies also talks about the beach nourishment project.
The Town has also developed videos on different aspects of beach nourishment to explain the process, issues, and what to expect. The segments are led by former Commissioner Bill Pitt, who provides these informative "Pitt Stops."
