“Wanting to know about the two huge piles of dirt just north of Monkey Junction on the east side of Carolina Beach Road?  They have been there a couple of years and now have grass planted on them.”


We believe you’re talking about the mounds across from Echo Farms Golf Course.   It’s part of a planned development along Carolina Beach Road and Fairview.

According to a contact person for the developer, the dirt is the fill from a retaining pond put in a couple years ago.  Engineers say the dirt is needed for the next phase of the project.  When the economy slowed down, the project was put on hold.  We’re told it will get back up and running when the economy improves.
