6/21/17 *Juniper Trail is now open to thru traffic-although still an active construction area until sidewalks and final paving, including top deck of culvert crossing are finished. Delays and temporary closures may still occur during final paving.
Change in Beach Nourishment Schedule – Nourishment of the Kitty Hawk/Southern Shores beaches is now scheduled to commence in early August. Given the haul distance from Borrow Area A to KDH is significantly shorter than the distance to KH, GLDD is strongly considering constructing KDH before they do Kitty Hawk and Southern Shores. The shorter distance is more conducive to the smaller dredges and they want to maximize their production while the Dodge and Padre are on site.
