The beach construction for Kill Devil Hills’ nourishment project began on Monday, June 13th. The project began around First Street and moved south to Prospect Avenue. The contractors shifted their work to the north and are working to complete construction to the KDH/Kitty Hawk Town border.
As of Thursday, June 23, construction is occurring between Third Street Beach Access and 1915 North Virginia Dare Trail.
The contractors have been using a sub-line located at the First Street Beach Access landing site; however, they are nearing the end of that line’s usage. (Sub-lines are the pipes used to pump sand from the dredge onto the beach.)
Friday morning, June 24, the contractors plan to transition to a sub-line that is located at the Walker Street Beach Access landing site. This sub-line is already in place. They will be moving additional equipment down the beach Friday and hope to start pumping again mid to late afternoon, pumping south from Walker Street.
