CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) - The Town of Carolina Beach has closed on a piece of property where a new pier could be built.

The property is located across from Harbor Masters Restaurant on Carolina Beach Avenue North.

The 1,000 ft. pier would be built for the town and the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher.

Construction on the pier is expected to take several years, but could be complete by 2015 at the earliest.
