once more for the gipper, er, beach road?

Here’s hoping that beach nourishment does its job.

With beach nourishment scheduled to begin along the Kitty Hawk beach in late June, NCDOT’s latest foray into dune maintenance will– hopefully –be their last along the Beach Road. That’s the conclusion Sam Walker comes to writing for the Outer Banks Voice and it’s what we hope will happen as well.

“For what many hope is the last time for years to come, truckloads of sand are being brought in from Currituck County to rebuild the chronically washed out duneline protecting the Beach Road near Kitty Hawk Road.

N.C. 12 between Starfish Lane and White Street is closed to through traffic, as well as to pedestrians and bicyclists, while contractors place sand along the stretch in front of the bath house near milepost 4.5 that has been eroded away by high surf the last several months.”

 

It seems like a story told once too many times, but this may be the final chapter of dune building to protect the Beach Road according to the Outer Banks Voice.
