According 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.
