Buxton Beach Nourishment Update Thursday November 16, 2017

Thursday, November 16, 2017

The hopper dredge R.N. Weeks remained in safe harbor in Jacksonville, Florida over the past week. The repairs on the dredge have been completed, and the dredge was scheduled to be put back in the water and have the US Coast Guard inspection yesterday (November 15). If everything goes as planned, the dredge will leave Jacksonville today (November 16) and is expected to arrive in Buxton Saturday evening or Sunday morning. The weather forecast shows workable conditions from Sunday to Wednesday of next week. If this forecast holds true, the dredge will resume pumping shortly after its return to the jobsite.

Before operations were shut down last Monday, Weeks Marine reported that ~1,222,575 cubic yards of sand has been placed on the beach. This volume is equivalent to ~47% of the project total (2,600,000 cubic yards). Once the dredge is back in Buxton, work will resume approximately 700 feet south of the first building in Buxton and proceed south until it reaches the southern boundary of the project.

Weeks Marine reports that sea trials of the larger hopper dredge Magdalen have been progressing smoothly and their engineering team is working on the pre-dredging drawings and documents that will be submitted to the Corps of Engineers. An estimated date for arrival of the larger dredge will be announced once the timeframe is established.

Buxton Beach Nourishment Update – Thursday October 26, 2017

Thursday October 26, 2017 10:45 a.m.

The hopper dredge R.N. Weeks returned to Buxton around 9 o’clock this morning and has begun pumping sand. Crews will continue working, moving to the south, as long as the weather and wave heights allow for safe operations.

Over the past week, the dredge completed 37 loads (compared to 22 loads the week before) and placed approximately 75,000 cubic yards of sand on the beach.

1,055,337 cubic yards of sand has been placed on the beach since the beginning of construction, which is about 40% of the total project volume. Weeks Marine plans to finish the southern portion of the project in front of Buxton, and then the dredge will move back to the landing site north of the village and complete the beach along the National Seashore.

The estimated date for the arrival of the new hopper dredge Magdalen, which has double capacity of R.N. Weeks, has been yet been determined.

Buxton Beach Nourishment Update – October 23, 2017

Monday, October 23, 2017

After working from the northern subline or landing site for several days last week, the hopper dredge R. N. Weeks connected to the subline near the village’s northern boundary on Saturday and has been pumping sand since approximately 6 p.m. Saturday evening.

With the approaching cold front due to bring high waves, the dredge will depart for Norfolk this evening and return later this week.  When the dredge returns, Weeks Marine plans to continue working south through the village of Buxton to the southern project boundary before moving back to the northern portion of the project area to complete the full scope of work.
