Buxton Beach Nourishment Update – September 13, 2017

Wednesday, September 13, 2017  2:30 p.m.

Weeks Marine reports that the cutterhead dredge C.R. McCaskill has completed dry-dock inspection and was towed from Charleston (SC) to Wilmington (NC) on Wednesday, September 6. After remaining in Wilmington for a few days waiting for the passage of Hurricane Irma, the dredge left Wilmington this morning and is under tow to Buxton. It is expected to arrive at the jobsite by Friday morning, September 15.

The beach crew will be moving dozers, loaders, and other support equipment from the staging area to the beach in front of the north end of the village of Buxton.  The fenced construction zone will be set up in the next couple of days and pumping is expected to resume shortly after the arrival of the dredge C.R. McCaskill.

In the meantime, the hopper dredge R.N. Weeks departed the dry dock in Louisiana this morning.  It is expected to take approximately 7–10 days for the dredge to arrive in Buxton.  On-site, pre-dredging inspection will be arranged with Corps of Engineers upon the arrival of the hopper dredge.  R.N. Weeks will use the second landing point located approximately 5,000 feet north of the first landing point, and pumping will proceed south to tie in with the sections that were completed by the cutterhead dredge.

Weeks Marine will continue to monitor the weather, especially the track of Hurricane Jose, and adjust their work plan accordingly.

Christmas Tree Decorating Contest At Cape Hatteras Motel

Here’s your chance to win a five night stay at your favorite motel…the Cape Hatteras Motel, of course! Enter our Christmas Tree Decorating Contest. This is a great way for us to celebrate all of you during the holiday season when summer seems so far away, and a chance for you to plan your next vacation.

Here’s how it works. Send us a Christmas ornament that represents your hometown, your state, or favorite sports team. It should be something that identifies your geographic location. This will help us decorate our office tree —  which looked a bit sparse last year — and will be a vivid reminder of where all our guests call home (and you do come from many places). When you send the ornament (and please don’t send anything breakable), include a small card with your name, e-mail address and cell phone number. We will draw one name from all the ornament entries received for a five night stay — no blackout dates and any room type (taxes not included – space must be available)!  Second prize will be a shell basket with shells we’ve collected from our beach and Shelly Island.

One entry per household please. The ornaments must be received by November 15, 2017. They can be mailed to Cape Hatteras Motel, P.O. Box 339, Buxton, NC 27920. If you are visiting with us before November 15, you can bring the ornament to the office. Ornaments will not be returned. We will take photos of the ornaments as we receive them and the finished tree and we will post on Facebook, and of course we will let you know the name of our winners. The drawing will be held the day before Thanksgiving.

We have had a great year but also a challenging one. We want to say thank you to all of you who supported us through the trials and tribulations of storms, beach re-nourishment, and of course, the Great Power Outage of 2017.

We hope to have a tree full of ornaments from all over the country (and maybe even points beyond), and we wish you good luck in the drawing!

Buxton Beach Nourishment Update – August 23, 2017

Wednesday, August 23, 2017   2:00 p.m.

Due to the upcoming marine forecast, the cutter dredge C.R. McCaskill will be leaving Buxton on Thursday, August 24 to ensure safety for the crew and equipment.  Since the dredge is likely to be offsite for at least seven to ten days, Weeks Marine has decided to utilize this downtime to have the U.S. Coast Guard’s mandatory dry dock inspection performed. The dredge will sail to Charleston, SC for a two week dry dock period and then return to Buxton to resume work.

The hopper dredge R.N. Weeks is scheduled to arrive in mid September and the current plan is to operate both dredges (the McCaskill and the R.N. Weeks) until the project is completed.

Additional updates will be provided as new information becomes available.
