ATLANTIC BEACH, N.C. (WNCT) — It’s out with the old and in with the new in Atlantic Beach.

Construction crews are well into the demolition project of the existing town hall and former police department. That process is expected to be complete by Monday. Plans call for construction of the new public safety and administration complex to start the first week of February.

Atlantic Beach Mayor Trace Cooper said dismantling the current town hall is bittersweet but said it’s also a sign of progress.

“We desperately needed new facilities so seeing the old ones go away, it’s a step in the right direction,” Cooper said.
