Back in late November, Duck announced that Weeks Marine was delaying its scheduled beach nourishment work for the town until the spring of 2023.  The town cited “equipment issues, minor weather-related delays, and a commitment to another time-sensitive job,” as reasons why the contractor had fallen behind the original schedule. The project was expected to take about 30-35 days to complete.

Between July 22 and November 22 of last year, beach nourishment projects were completed in

F&Kill Devil Hills, Avon, Buxton, Nags Head, Kitty Hawk and Southern Shores. Only the Duck project was not completed in 2022.
