New River Inlet Channel Realignment Project (Phase One) 

 

At the January 4, 2012 regular Board of Aldermen meeting the Board made the decision to proceed with Phase One of the Town’s permitted shoreline and inlet management project as proposed by Coastal Planning & Engineering (CP&E).  Phase One includes realigning the New River Inlet Channel and would increase the depth of the channel to approximately 18 feet and widen the channel 500 feet.  Approximately 544,400 cubic yards of sand from the channel will be placed along 9,000 feet of shoreline south of the inlet.   

 

The Town advertised and released the bid documents for the New River Inlet Channel Realignment Project on Friday, August 3rd. Bids were opened on Thursday, September 6 at 2:00 p.m. That night at the regular Board of Aldermen meeting, the project engineers from Coastal Planning and Engineering presented the bids to the Board and recommended the lowest bidder, Marinex Construction Inc.

 

The bid came in below CP&E's estimated cost of $6.5 million at $5,614,160. Marinex indicated that they will be able to start the project at the earliest date possible which will be November 16, 2012. The Board awarded the project to Marinex Construction contingent upon approval of the Town's application to the Local Government Commission for financing of the project (LGC will meet on Oct 2, 2012).
