RALEIGH - N.C. Department of Transportation Secretary Gene Conti has awarded a $1.6 million contract to Landford Brothers Co. of Roanoke, Va. to preserve the bridge on N.C. 210 in North Topsail Beach.
Work includes replacing joints and hydro-demolition. This process removes deteriorated concrete on the bridge deck using high-pressured water. The bridge then will be resurfaced using high-strength concrete.
Work can begin as early as March 1, 2013 and must be completed within 240 days after work starts.
This is one of 14 contracts totaling $100.8 million awarded by Conti in September 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 11.3 percent, or $12.8 million, below NCDOT estimates.
Since Gov. Bev Perdue took office in January of 2009, NCDOT has awarded 712 highway contracts totaling $5 billion to ensure that all North Carolinians have access to jobs and educational opportunities. Gov. Perdue continues to support immediate jobs in the construction sector and the goal of ensuring that our transportation network facilitates access to jobs, education and healthcare for the future.
