- The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded a $743,180 contract to replace a bridge on Substation Road over Densons Creek, north of Troy in Montgomery County. Davie Grading, Inc. of Mocksville was awarded the contract and construction can begin as early as Nov. 28.
All work except planting and reforestation is scheduled to be complete by Sept. 15, 2012 and the project is scheduled to be completely finished by Dec. 31, 2012. This is one of 11 contracts totaling $71.7 million awarded by Transportation Secretary Gene Conti for highway and bridge projects across North Carolina. The contracts were awarded to the lowest bidders, as required by state law. The winning bids received on the projects came in about 12.2 percent, or about $10 million, below NCDOT estimates. Since Gov. Bev Perdue took office in January of 2009, NCDOT has awarded 427 highway contracts totaling $3.4 billion to ensure that all North Carolinians have access to jobs and educational opportunities.
