In 2018, Hurricane Florence caused widespread damage along the North Carolina coast. As the storm stalled, #BogueBanksNC lost hundreds of thousands of cubic yards of sand along its 24 miles of oceanfront shoreline. The Carteret County Beach Commission recently voted to accept a $28.2 million bid to replace the lost sand and rebuild the dune system as part of a three-phased post-Florence renourishment effort. The first permitted Bogue Banks 50-Year Master #BeachNourishment Plan, developed by M&N, has paved the way for the County to quickly respond to storms and rebuild its coastal infrastructure without a lengthy permitting process.
The team leading the Bogue Banks project recently presented the master plan and phased projects scheduled until 2021 at the #ASBPA2019 National Coastal Conference in Myrtle Beach, SC.
