Topsail Beach News

Preliminary preparations for the Town’s Local Storm Damage Reduction Project (SDR) are underway.  The first of two dredges, the JS Chatry, is scheduled to arrive in January but the groundwork for the massive Dredge has begun in earnest.  Representatives from TI Coastal and Weeks Marine are preparing the area in an effort to make the job move in an orderly and efficient manner.  Over the next few weeks, you may see representatives of both companies along the beach documenting conditions and preparing to bring in the necessary pipes and equipment to complete the project.

As part of the project, the contractor will implement a vibration monitoring program (VMP) that will be conducted during construction.  SSI, INC. (SSI) will perform this vibration monitoring on behalf of Weeks Marine.  SSI is an independent consulting firm specializing in the measurement and control of construction vibrations.  SSI will also conduct exterior only pre-construction surveys of the buildings and improvements that are adjacent to the project and implement seismic monitoring during construction.  You will see their representatives along the beach taking pictures and documenting existing conditions.

We are excited to get our project underway.  As we get closer to actual construction, look for more information from the Town.  Once the project begins, look for progress maps and updates on our website.  For more information on these upcoming projects, please contact us at Town Hall.
