Crews from the Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company have completed work in the Town of Kill Devil Hills, according to the town’s latest update.The town reported that at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 27, 2017 the Liberty Island dredge and Great Lakes Dredge and Dock pumped the last load of sand onto Kill Devil Hills’ beaches.The process of equipment demobilization is now underway in the S Street area and will continue until all equipment and piping is removed for transport to Kitty Hawk, the report said.Once pumping operations begin in Kitty Hawk they will be moving south for approximately 800 feet. The crews will then be moving under the Kitty Hawk pier and beginning to pump north into Southern Shores.In Buxton, crews with the Weeks Marine continued to work their way south towards the village of Buxton. Despite last week’s bad weather, the company decided to keep the dredge on site so that pumping can resume soon after sea conditions subside early this week.

It’s going to be an addition to what we have in our glass case and we continue to look forward to a partnership with CPL and the Amazon Warriors.”
