ATLANTIC BEACH, Carteret County — Are you interested in the progress of the winter dredging project on the East end of Atlantic Beach? The Army Corp of Engineers now offers a Sand Placement Tracker that shows the progress of the project in real-time. Please click below for both the web and mobile versions.
This periodic dredging is completed every few years to keep the harbor and entrance channel at the N.C. State Port of Morehead City safe for ships. The dredging is necessary for the port and is part of regular maintenance, which means free sand for Atlantic Beach.
