All interested parties are hereby advised that the Wilmington District, Corps of Engineers (Corps) is extending the January 10, 2014 Public Notice commenting period for the Town of North Topsail Beach’s request to modify the May 27, 2011 Department of the Army to relocate the New River Inlet ebb tide channel and to conduct beach nourishment along 11.1 miles of North Topsail Beach oceanfront shoreline in Onslow County, North Carolina. The proposed modification request is to combine Phase 3 and 5 sections into a single dredging event. All plans described in the January 10, 2014 Public Notice remain the same with the exception that the Town proposes to extend their dredging window from November 16th - March 31st to November 16th to April 30th. This proposed window extension is to ensure that Phase 3 and Phase 5 can be completed during one dredging cycle. This notice amends our January 10, 2014 Public Notice seeking comments on the modification project and extends the commenting period to February 28, 2014.

This Public Notice Amendment, along with the January 10, 2014 Pubic Notice, is available on the Wilmington District Web Site at
