PINE KNOLL SHORES & EMERALD ISLE
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
This coastal protection project involved replenishing the shoreline along Bogue Banks with approximately 918,000 cubic yards of beach-quality sand. Performing dredging efforts using three hopper dredges, GLDD filled nearly 35,000 linear feet of beachfront in the Towns of East and West Emerald Isle and Pine Knoll Shores. Renourishment on this project helped repair damage to the Bogue Banks shoreline sustained from Hurricane Irene in 2011, as well as protect the local area from the future impact of coastal storms.
