The Town of Nags Head is planning on participating in a beach re-nourishment project in 2022. This will impact 5 miles of shoreline beginning at Milepost 16 (just south of Jenette's Pier) and continue through Milepost 21 where it meets the National Park Service land.
The Beach Nourishment project will include pumping sand from the ocean floor up onto the beach in areas to build up the beach and create a larger area to receive the impact of wave action and storm surge. The beaches will be open during this time. However, this project may restrict access to certain areas of the beach during construction and some public beach access may be closed for a short period of time.
The latest estimate has the project beginning in Spring 2022. However, permitting and bid delays could push the start date back.
Please visit the Town of Nags Head website for the most updated information on work schedules and impact zones.
