Nags Head Beach Nourishment
The town of Nags Head has plans to preserve our precious beaches through a process of beach nourishment beginning in 2019. Also called beach renourishment, the Nags Head beach nourishment project will help control erosion and extend the width of the beach. The project calls for not only dredging sand, but also to help secure the dunes through new fencing and sprigging.
How Is The Nags Head Beach Doing?
You may have heard that the project was to take place in 2018, but a report by The Outer Banks Sentinel sites a review by Coastal Science & Engineering and Nags Head Board of Commissioners. They found that “The Nags Head beach is in pretty good shape still.” They found that 64% of the 2011 nourishment sand still remains, and although there is work to be done, it will be more cost effective in 2019.
The work will begin on the Nags Head beach nourishment project in the spring of 2019 and take place between milepost 11 and milepost 21. For more information and a informational video visit the Dare County NC beach nourishment page.
We’ll update this Outer Banks blog post with updates when work begins on the Nags Head beach nourishment project in the spring of 2019, but until then come visit Nags Head!
