New Dunes on Topsail Beach

APRIL 7, 2006 -- A section of North Topsail Beach may not look familiar the next time you visit. The Topsail Voice reports a huge beach recovery project there has wrapped up.

About 13 miles of beachfront now has new sand. Crews brought in more than 75,000 tons of sand to build up new dunes on the beach. They replaced the dunes that were destroyed by Hurricane Ophelia in September.

The project cost nearly $2-million.
