Weeks Marine reports that over 2.2 million cubic yards of sand has been placed within the project’s design template. This means that about 85 percent of the sand for the project has now been pumped onto the beach. Weeks Marine anticipates completing the project in March.
After being in Norfolk earlier this week for refueling and maintenance, the hopper dredge Magdalen returned to Buxton Friday morning and began pumping sand. Work is currently moving south towards the completed section of beach just north of the village of Buxton. The pipe will then be flipped and construction will move north until the project is completed.To view the updated project map, visit http://bit.ly/BuxtonBN
