RALEIGH — N.C. Department of Transportation Secretary Gene Conti has awarded a contract to repair more than 67 miles of primary roads in Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender counties. The $2.7 million contract was awarded to S.T. Wooten Corp. of Wilson. Work can begin as early as Oct. 31 and be completed by May 18, 2012. The contract covers more than 67 miles of primary roads including U.S. 17, U.S. 74/76 and N.C. 130 in New Hanover County and U.S. 117/N.C. 132 and U.S. 17 Business in Pender County. Also, eight miles of U.S. 74/76 in Brunswick County will be repaired. This is one of 12 contracts totaling $91.3 million awarded by Conti in September for highway and bridge projects across North Carolina. The contracts were awarded to the lowest bidders, as required by state law, and came in at 3.6 percent, or about $3.4 million, below NCDOT estimates. According to the Federal Highway Administration, every $1 million spent on transportation creates 30 jobs, and according to the construction industry, every dollar invested in transportation generates $6 in economic impact. Since Gov. Bev Perdue took office in January of 2009, NCDOT has awarded 416 highway contracts totaling $3.3 billion to ensure that all North Carolinians have access to jobs and educational opportunities. ***NCDOT***
