NCDOT Awards $2.9 Million to Resurface More than 24 Miles of Roads in Lincoln County

RALEIGH - N.C. Department of Transportation Secretary Gene Conti awarded a contract to resurface 24.2 miles of roads, including a stretch of N.C. 27, and seven sections of secondary roads throughout Lincoln County.

A $2.9 million contract was awarded to J.T. Russell and Sons Inc. of Albemarle. Work can begin as early as Oct. 1 and must be completed by June 15, 2013.

The following roads will be resurfaced:

  • 14.8 miles of N.C. 27 from the South Fork River bridge in Lincolnton to N.C. 18 near the Cleveland County line;
  • 1.7 miles of Asbury Church Road in Boger City from Old Mill Road to Furnace Road;
  • 1.2 miles of Old N.C. 150 (Crouse Road) in Crouse from 250 feet southeast of N.C. 150 to 400 feet southwest of N.C. 150;
  • 2.8 miles of Amity Church Road in Denver from N.C. 73 to King Wilkinson Road;
  • 1 mile of Furnace Road Extension in Denver from Asbury Church Road to King Wilkinson Road;
  • 1 mile of Optimist Club Road in Denver from St. James Church Road to Triangle Circle;
  • 0.9 mile of Ivey Memorial Church Road in Lincoln County from Buffalo Shoals Road to the Catawba County line; and
  • 0.8 mile of Lithia Inn Road in Boger City from the U.S. 321 overpass to N.C. 27.

Resurfacing these sections of roadway will extend the lifespan of the pavement, improve safety and provide a smoother ride for motorists.

This is one of 19 contracts totaling $208.7 million awarded by Conti in August 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 15.3 percent, or $37.6 million, below NCDOT estimates.

Since Gov. Bev Perdue took office in January of 2009, NCDOT has awarded 698 highway contracts totaling $4.9 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.
