WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) — A renourishment project along a New Hanover County beach is ahead of schedule.

The Army Corps of Engineers gave some local leaders a tour of the dredging going on in Wrightsville Beach.

They also visited the renourishment site near Johnny Mercer’s Pier Tuesday.

The work is being done in 1,000ft increments along the beach from just north of the Holiday Inn to the Blockade Runner Resort.

Town Manager Tim Owens says crews are making good progress.



The hope is the project will be done by the third week of March.
