What's Next: Ports
By Catherine M. Welch
Wilmington, NC – In mid-January, the North Carolina Ports Authority put up $3 million and singed a deal for 600 acres of land along the Cape Fear River just north of Southport.
This is where the Ports Authority wants to build a brand new port that would take in two-million containers and rival the Port of Charleston.
News of the project leaked out of the Ports Authority's board meeting last month. WHQR News Director Catherine Welch asked Ports Authority CEO Tom Eager to outline how this project developed.
