Beach Nourishment - We are getting "More Beach to Love"
The Towns of Duck, Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills and now Southern Shores are planning a Beach Nourishment project scheduled for 2017. The project as proposed will nourish approximately 2 miles of beach in Duck, all of Kitty Hawk and the northernmost 2.7 miles of beach in Kill Devil Hills. Southern Shores has begun the process of joining the project with adding 2500 feet cubic yards at the towns southern point.
The Beach Nourishment project will include pumping sand from the ocean floor onto the beach to build up eroded areas. That will help to create a wider beach area to protect and enhance our shoreline. The beaches will remain open during this time but access to certain areas will be restricted during the actual construction phase.
