Asks for erosion control measures in & around Cape Hatteras NS streamlined as climate menace mounts

Officials with the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have signed an agreement on how to proceed with requests for erosion control measures deemed necessary to protect roads, homes and businesses from rapidly eroding ocean and sound side areas of Cape Hatteras National Seashore.

The plan essentially streamlines the process for the next 20 years of approving work by Dare and Hyde counties, the N.C. Department of Transportation, or other state and local agencies, on projects such as beach nourishment in front of the Hatteras Island villages, sandbags and rebuilding of dunes to protect N.C. 12, and other work like the bulkhead and rock groin under construction at the ferry dock on the north end of Ocracoke Island.
