The Town hereby announces the completion of the 2016 Island wide Beach Renourishment Project. The Town's contractor Weeks Marine, Inc. completed sand placement activities in the overnight hours on December 29. Since the start of the project in June, more than 2.5 million cubic yards of sand have been placed along approximately 7 miles of shoreline. The work includes damage reparations to some portions of the beach damaged by Hurricane Matthew. Weeks Marine plans to demobilize from the Island within the next 30 days via Islanders' Beach Park and the Town's Collier Beach Property.
