Refurbishing OBX Pier

Governor Beverly Perdue says retooling an old Outer Banks landmark will create hundreds of jobs and help visitors learn about North Carolina marine life and nature.

Perdue signed a bill into law Wednesday to pay for construction of the North Carolina Aquarium Pier at Nags Head, using admissions money at state aquariums and outside sources.

The legislature gave its final ok to the $25 million plan Tuesday. The bill says refurbishing the pier could create more than 550 jobs.
