The Town of Nags Head will be conducting a beach renourishment project starting May 2019 and lasting possibly through the fall of that year. 

Plans call for sand to be placed on 10 miles of beach from the Bonnett Street public beach access at 2919 S. Virginia Dare Trail (near Mile Post 11) south to the town line with the National Park Service (near Mile Post 21).

The Town does not expect to have a schedule for the project until late April 2019 and even then the schedule will likely change often as weather conditions and other issue arise. More than one section of the beach could be impacted during the project and the project progression will likely not be linear, meaning that it won't start at one end of town and proceed to the other end.
