Carolina Beach closes parking lot to begin construction on Hamlet Ocean Rescue and Restroom Project

CAROLINA BEACH — Starting Monday, Sept. 13, the beach access and parking lot at Hamlet Avenue in Carolina Beach will close for demolition.

Thereafter, the Town of Carolina Beach will begin construction on the Hamlet Ocean Rescue and Restroom Project, first slated to begin in 2019. The project entails a new 4,500 square foot building that will house an office, locker rooms, storage, as well as public restrooms and outdoor showers.

Monday’s demolition and prep work officially pushes forward the plans. Crews will first remove the sidewalk and parking lot with heavy machinery. No road closures are expected to be impacted by the demo.

Concerns can be addressed with Paula Kempton at (910) 458-2978 or Ben Meister at (910) 232-1144.
