WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - A new $15 million cold storage facility is being built at the Port of Wilmington, a project expected to create 100 jobs.

Local media outlets report that Gov. Pat McCrory helped break ground on the new building Tuesday.

McCrory says the cold storage facility will make the port more competitive and make it easier for North Carolina companies and growers to distribute their perishable products.

The governor says exporters have had to use other ports that had cold storage facilities onsite.

Construction is expected to begin in the next few weeks and be completed by February.
