NCDOT AWARDS $29.4 MILLION CONTRACT TO WIDEN N.C. 211 IN MOORE COUNTY

RALEIGH - The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded a $29.4 million contract to widen a section of N.C. 211 from N.C. 73 in West End to the traffic circle in Pinehurst in Moore County. The contract, awarded to S.T. Wooten Corp. of Wilson, calls for grading, paving, signals and shoulder reconstruction. Construction on this 7.6 mile project can begin as early as Nov. 28, and is scheduled to be completed by May 25, 2014. Motorists can expect various lane shifts throughout construction as crews widen the road from two to four lanes. 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. For more information about funding for infrastructure improvements in North Carolina, as well as other NCDOT projects and activities, visit www.ncdot.gov.
