Cook Road Boat Launch

3786 Lakeshore Rd

Cook Road Boat Launch

Dredging was completed in Spring 2017 as planned under the existing permit from the Ministry of Environment to reduce the accumualtion of sand in the Cook Road boat launch. The sand was screened and relocated to nourish the south shoreline of Rotary Beach, close to Manteo Resort.

The City will be evaluating solutions for a long-term plan to stabilize the shoreline in this area.
