Here’s the Latest from
the Town of Nags Head on Beach Nourishment:
Nags Head’s beach
nourishment project is progressing well with construction moving south towards
the town line with the National Park Service at Mile Post 21. Once this area
has been completed in 10 days or so, operations will turn north from near
Pelican Street and begin progressing north towards Outer Banks Pier and then
towards Jennette’s Pier.
The Dredge Liberty
Island will begin working off of a second submerged line (through which sand is
pumped from the dredge onto the beach) installed between Conch Street and
Hollowell Street near Mile Post 11.5. Construction in this area is planned to
begin around May 22, 2019 and will progress north to Mile Post 11 first, before
moving south from the sub-line near Conch Street and then further south towards
NOTE – Parking at
the Juncos and Forrest Street beach accesses will be closed for the duration of
the project, which is slated to last 90-120 days. However, pedestrian access
will still be permitted. Lifeguard stands will still be in place, but may be
moved a few feet to accommodate construction traffic.
Here’s the Latest from the Town of Nags Head on Beach Nourishment:
Equipment is being staged on the beach and at the Forest Street and Juncos Street public beach accesses in preparation for the start of Nags Head’s 2019 beach nourishment project. Great Lakes Dredge and Dock, the Town’s dredging contractor for the project, has installed a sub-line (the submerged pipe through which sand is pumped from a dredge offshore up unto the beach) at station 975, which is just south of Limulus Street and just north of Pelican Street in south Nags Head, near Mile Post 20.5. On May 1, they expect to begin construction in this area and will be progressing south towards the southern project terminus near Mile Post 21 (at the town/National Park Service line). Once they have completed this area, they will then turn north from the sub-line near Pelican Street and begin professing north towards Outer Banks Pier and then towards Jennette’s Pier. They are working to install another sub-line at the north end of town, between Conch Street and Hollowell Street near Mile Post 11.5, so that they can begin construction on May 7 and progress north to Mile Post 11 first, before moving south from the sub-line near Conch Street.
Cove Realty will continue to post notices and progress on FaceBook throughout the beach nourishment project!
wish to inform you that the Town of Nags Head will be conducting a beach
nourishment project starting in May of this year and lasting possibly through October.
Beach nourishment is the process of pumping sand onto an eroding shoreline to
widen the existing beach. Sources of sand may include a nearby sandbar, a
dredged source such as an inlet or waterway, or an offshore borrow site along
the ocean floor. The widened shoreline provides increased defense from coastal
storms and beach erosion protecting property, communities and infrastructure
located along the shoreline.
call for sand to be placed on 10 miles of beach from the Bonnett Street public
beach access at 2919 S. Virginia Dare Trail (near Mile Post 11) south to the
town line with the National Park Service (near Mile Post 21). The Town does not expect to have a
schedule for the project until late April 2019, and even then, the
schedule will likely change often due to potential storms and/or other
than one section of the beach could be impacted during the project, and the
project progression will likely not be linear, meaning that it won’t start at
one end of town and proceed to the other end.
We will soon have a link on our website’s homepage for beach nourishment
information, which will include a current schedule, when available.
1,000 feet of the beach will be directly impacted during construction at any
one time, and a portion of this area may be closed. Construction is anticipated
to impact properties between 3-6 days. Once a section is pumped into place it
should be re-opened for use within 24-48 hours. Sand ramps will be placed over
a temporary pipeline at every public access and then in intervals of no more
than 200-300 feet, allowing people to get across and enjoy the beach seaward of
upon the location of the operations, ocean front and ocean side homes may
experience temporary construction noise, night illumination, and/or beach
access diversions. If construction
limits access directly in front of your property, you may need to enter the
beach at an alternate beach access.
Beach nourishment is
vital to the future of Nags Head, and we ask for your patience and
understanding while this work is underway.

For guests arriving next week, we will also contact you if your rental home incurs any damage that would effect your stay.
In the meantime, if you’re currently here on the Outer Banks, whether long term or short term, please be prepared.

Projected Beach Nourishment Schedules
What is beach nourishment?
Beach nourishment is the process of pumping sand onto an eroding shoreline to widen the existing beach. Sources of sand may include a nearby sandbar, a dredged source such as an inlet or waterway, or an offshore borrow site along the ocean floor. The widened shoreline provides increased defense from coastal storms and beach erosion protecting property, communities and infrastructure located along the shoreline.
The Town of Nags Head is working towards conducting its first beach nourishment maintenance project. Plans call for sand to be placed on 10 miles of beach during the summer of 2018. Nags Head’s oceanfront from the Bonnett Street public beach access at 2919 S. Virginia Dare Trail (near Mile Post 11) south to the town line with the National Park Service (near Mile Post 21) will be impacted over the 4 to 5 month-long project.
The Town is now awaiting permits and hopes to receive construction bids in late March or April. The bid amounts may make it more feasible to delay construction until the summer of 2019; however, the preferred goal is to conduct the work in 2018. Construction is not slated to begin until late June/early July 2018. Dune stabilization measures such as sprigging and fencing will also be included in the project.
