Buxton Beach Nourishment Update – August 17, 2017

Thursday, August 17, 2017  1:15 p.m.

The cutterhead dredge C.R. McCaskill resumed pumping Wednesday afternoon around 3 p.m.  Work in the section of beach just north of the subline has been completed. Weeks Marine will grade the newly nourished beach and open it to the public later this afternoon.

Also this afternoon, crews will flip the pipeline and begin working south towards the village of Buxton. It is expected to take 20 to 24 days of full pumping production to finish the south side of the project from the current landing point.

As work moves through Buxton, beach goers in the project area are advised to use caution, stay out of marked off work zones, and adhere to instructions and signs posted by construction crews on site.

As reported previously, a second subline for a hopper dredge was installed last Friday approximately 5,000 feet north of the existing subline; however, the arrival of a second dredge was delayed.  Weeks Marine estimates that the hopper dredge R.N. Weeks should arrive and be able to start pumping sand in the second week of September.

At this point, approximately one third of the project has been completed.

The project map will be updated later today, once the new construction zone is designated.

Buxton Beach Nourishment Update – August 15, 2017

Tuesday, August 15, 2017   12:00 p.m.

Weeks Marine has worked intermittently over the last few days, as marine conditions allowed. With Hurricane Gert forecasted to pass offshore, high waves are expected today and tomorrow. Weeks Marine is closely monitoring the weather. Once work resumes, work will continue in the section of beach just north of Buxton for approximately twenty four hours of pumping and then work will proceed south from the subline towards the village of Buxton.
The second subline for a hopper dredge was laid on Friday, August 11 approximately 5,000 feet north of the original subline. The arrival of a hopper dredge has been delayed and the anticipated arrival date will be announced once the updated mobilization plan has been determined.

The next update will be issued when pumping of sand resumes.
