Phase 5 project set to resume

GST1

The Town’s contractor, ST Wooten will resume the Phase 5 beach nourishment project and begin mobilizing equipment and prepping the Gray Street beach access on Wednesday, November 16th.  Mobilization and set-up will occur through Friday and we anticipate there will be some truck hauling as well.  ST Wooten plans to go to peak production mode on Monday, November 21st.  Work is scheduled Monday through Friday weather permitting and the Gray Street beach access will be closed while work is being performed.   They will continue working north of the access at an approximate start address being 110 Topsail Road and will work north to approximately 3682 Island Drive.  We anticipate that in February, the beach nourishment project will begin at Gray Street and work south through the permitted environmental window of April 2023. 

Why is the contractor working north first?  This is for seasonal reasons.  More waves from the north pushing sand to the south in the winter, then more waves from the south in the spring push material north.

This is not a dune project as we are continuing to place sand on the active area of the beach.  Please exercise caution in and around work areas.  Thank you for your patience as we continue to place sand on the beach.
