PLEASURE ISLAND, N.C. — A walk on the beach won’t be as easy this winter and spring in parts of southeast North Carolina.
Crews are working to put more than a million cubic yards of sand back on the beaches at Kure Beach and Carolina Beach in projects scheduled to last through April.
The StarNews of Wilmington reports equipment will be set up in public parking lots are areas of the beach will be fenced off as crews work.
The beaches on Pleasure Island south of Wilmington get new sand every three years in projects that cost $8 million to $10 million.
The projects are paid through hotel room taxes, along with state and federal funds. But local officials say they realize outside money may not keep coming.
