PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Pender county may finally have what they need to construct a new boat ramp.

On Friday, the county was awarded a nearly $3 million grant from the state's waterfront access and marine industry fund.

County officials want to build a boat ramp in an area of Hampstead along the Intracoastal Waterway.

There are no public boat ramps between Wrightsville Beach and Surf City.
