Buxton Beach Nourishment Update – August 10, 2017

Thursday, August 10, 2017    2:00 p.m.

Weeks Marine resumed pumping sand this morning around 9:30 after two days of being shut down due to weather. The current marine forecast looks favorable for pumping the next several days.

The cutterhead dredge McCaskill will work on filling a 900-foot section of beach just north of Buxton during the next five days of pumping and will then proceed south through the village of Buxton.

In the meantime, Weeks Marine will be setting up a second subline approximately 5,000 ft north of the current subline.  A second dredge – a hopper dredge – is scheduled to arrive in Buxton next week, weather permitting.  Once the second dredge arrives and passes the Army Corps’ on-site pre-dredging inspection, pumping will start from the newly placed northern subline and proceed south.

Buxton Beach Nourishment Update – August 4, 2017

 August 4, 2017  5 p.m.

Weeks Marine pumped sand steadily this morning and shut down operations just before 3 p.m. due to rising sea conditions.

With the dredge shut down, Weeks Marine’s beach crew plans to disconnect the pipes in front of the Cape Hatteras Motel and grade the newly nourished beach and open it to the public.  When sea conditions subside, work will proceed a short distance to the north of the current landing point to complete the section between the previous landing point and the current landing point to the full design volume.  Once that section of beach is completed, pumping will resume south.

As work resumes south through the village of Buxton, remember to use caution, stay out of marked-off work zones, and adhere to instructions and signs posted by construction crews on site.  Please keep in mind that schedules and plans are subject to change.

The next update will be issued when work resumes.

Buxton Beach Nourishment Update – August 2, 2017

Buxton Beach Nourishment Update … Wednesday, August 2, 2017 … Pumping Resumed

After having to shut down pumping operations on Friday morning, July 29 due to rough sea conditions, the pumping of sand resumed this afternoon just after 4:00 p.m. Construction is moving to the south and has approached the north end of Buxton.

Rough sea conditions on Friday, August 4 may lead to another delay over the weekend, but Weeks Marine estimates that if the current forecast holds, sea conditions will allow them to work for approximately four days over the coming week.

At this point, approximately 22% of the project has been completed. Updates will be provided as additional information is available.

Updated Timeline for Restoration of Power on Hatteras Island

Cape Hatteras Electric Cooperative (CHEC) has announced that two simultaneous solutions are being executed to restore transmission service to Hatteras Island and the estimated timeline to complete repairs will range from one to two weeks. CHEC is concurrently working to expand temporary generation service to the island.

Evacuation for all visitors to Hatteras Island will remain in effect until adequate, reliable power is established to meet the demand. County officials will continue to closely monitor the progress of restoration efforts so that visitors can return to the island as soon as possible.

For updated information from CHEC regarding power restoration, visit www.chec.coop/ or their Facebook page.

Currently, Essential Personnel (Priority One), Permanent Residents & Essential Personnel for Critical Businesses (Priority Two), and Non-Resident Property Owners & Non-Resident Employees of Non-Critical Businesses (Priority Three) are allowed access to Hatteras Island with proper reentry credentials.
