Tall Pine Bridge Replacement Update

A contract has been awarded to Keystone Contracting Co for the Tall Pine Bridge replacement project.  The contractor will be mobilizing to the site and closing the bridge on November 16, 2015.  The bridge will remain closed until May 2016.  There will be several instances when the canal will be closed to boat traffic for several days at a time, those dates have yet to be determined.

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.
