to Weeks Marine, if the weather forecast is accurate for the next 3
days, the project area in front of the village of Buxton (including the
taper section in front of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore) will be
completed by Saturday, December 16.
The dredge R.N. Weeks is scheduled to go to Norfolk, VA for fuel and
regular maintenance on Sunday, December 17. While the dredge is gone,
the newly nourished beaches will be graded to the design elevation. If
all plans are executed as planned, the beach along the village of
Buxton is expected to be fully open to the public early next week.
After finishing nourishment along the south section of the project, the
construction zone will be relocated north of the village of Buxton and
pumping will proceed north.
