RALEIGH - N.C. Department of Transportation Secretary Gene Conti has awarded a $2.5 million contract to Barrett, Irvin & Jordan Contractors, Inc. of Durham for improvements on 12 Person County roads. The contract calls for milling, shoulder reconstruction and resurfacing over 25 miles of roadway.
The work will include 5.6 miles of Gordonton Road from U.S. 158 to Bowes Road in the western part of the county, as well as 3.4 miles of Woodsdale Road from U.S. 501 to Mcghees Mill Road north of Roxboro, and 2.5 miles of Frank Timberlake Road from Satterfield Road to Roby Barton Road in the southern section of the county.
Work on the roads can start as early as March 12, and is scheduled to be wrapped up by Aug. 17, 2012.
This is one of 12 contracts totaling $32.1 million awarded by Secretary Conti for highway and bridge projects across North Carolina. NCDOT awarded the contracts to the lowest bidders, as required by state law. The bids received on the projects awarded came in about 6 percent, or about $2.1 million, below NCDOT estimates.
Since Gov. Bev Perdue took office in January of 2009, NCDOT has awarded 439 highway contracts totaling $3.4 billion to ensure that all North Carolinians have access to jobs and educational opportunities.
