SURF CITY, NC (WWAY) -- Higher education is taking shape in Surf City.
Today Cape Fear Community College set into place the first bricks for its new Alston W. Burke Campus off NC 210.
The property was donated to the college by the late Burke in 2008. The entire budget for construction of the project is set at $2.3 million with funding coming from the Town of Surf City, Pender County and CFCC funds.
The first building is scheduled to be finished Dec. 12. Classes are expected to begin early next year.
