ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. (AP) – Work crews are finding that the people who built the Camden Causeway had no intention of letting it fall down.

The Daily Advance of Elizabeth City reports (http://bit.ly/U38JL8) that N.C. Department of Transportation resident engineer Randy Midgett said the quality of workmanship that went into building the 1931 bridge is making it more difficult to take apart.

Midgett said the causeway bridge was put together and reinforced so well that crews with Atlanta-based Archer Western have had to resort to breaking it up instead of dismantling it piece-by-piece.

The eastbound bridge over the Pasquotank River connects Elizabeth City with Camden County. It will be replaced with a new bridge. Archer Western is facing a June 2015 deadline for completing the work, which includes upgrading the westbound bridge.

Belmont Abbey College announces drop in tuition

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

BELMONT, N.C. (AP) – Belmont Abbey College says it’s reducing the cost of its tuition beginning in fall 2013, a move school officials say is designed to increase accessibility to the school.

The Charlotte Observer reports (http://bit.ly/QqRbwD ) the school announced Wednesday that tuition will drop from $27,622 a year to $18,500 a year.

School officials said that with 1,700 students, Belmont Abbey is at record enrollment. President William Thierfelder said in a news release that the decision to reduce tuition is a strategic move toward providing an outstanding private college education at an affordable price.

The college cited a College Board poll of college-bound seniors this year that found more than half had ruled out colleges on sticker price alone without considering potential financial aid.
