Beach renourishment this year

We're at Emerald Isle now and were surprised to find the big renourishment project right in front of our house rental. If you're planning a trip to EI you'll want to know where the project is (it didn't matter to us because we had already paid for the house last fall).

This is very helpful as we have a trip planned but I am having a hard time figuring out this map. Would you mind sharing (in general terms - a few blocks) where the renourishment project is currently/where you rented? Thanks!

The map is difficult to follow, and it didn't make sense to us when we were there, either. You might want to check with whoever you are renting from as they will have a better idea if you will be affected.

Right now the crew is working in the 5000 block of Ocean Drive. They are moving East towards the lower numbered blocks and are supposed to be finished before April 30th for the turtle nesting season.

You will actually want to boycott this entire county. (Carteret county) These fascists are violating NC law by arresting people on Public Trust Doctrine beaches.

With all due respect Coach B doesn’t know what he’s talking about. In 2016 there was a lawsuit because someone bought a beach house and didn’t like town and other vehicles driving on the beach. Nobody has been arrested. And people have been driving on the beach in Carteret County for many years, certainly since the 1979s when I started going there.

You are wrong Madam!

I was threatened with Arrest right on property I rented that also falls under public trust doctrine. The grunt working for Great Lakes Dredge and Dock that called the police bragged how he had just gotten someone arrested a few days earlier.

This is classic fascism of Big biz and local government teaming up to violate your rights.

Boycott Emeral Isle and Carteret County.

"And people have been driving on the beach in Carteret County for many years,"

Who said anything about driving? I was threatened with arrest, on the beach, on property I rented.

With all due respect. You don't know what you're talking about Lynn-in-Chapel-Hill.
