NCDOT Awards $3.8 Million for Resurfacing Projects in Iredell County

RALEIGH - N.C. Department of Transportation Secretary Gene Conti awarded a contract to resurface 22.5 road miles in Iredell County.

A $3.8 million contract was awarded to Maymead Inc. of Mountain City, Tenn. Work can begin as early as March 15 and be completed by Nov. 15.

The following roads will be resurfaced:

  • 4.1 miles of N.C. 150 in Mooresville from N.C. 115 to the Rowan County line;
  • 2.9 miles of Tabor Road in Harmony from Tatum Road to N.C. 901;
  • 1.8 miles of Sheffield Road in Iredell County from N.C. 901 to the start of the tar and gravel area of the road;
  • 1.8 miles of N.C. 150 in Mooresville from Interstate 77 to McLelland Avenue;
  • 1.6 miles of Cooper Farm Road in Statesville from Fort Dobbs Road to Nixon Road;
  • 1.5 miles of Westminster Drive in Statesville from U.S. 70 to Bristol Drive;
  • 1.5 miles of Neill Farm Road in Iredell County from Perth Road to the dead end;
  • 1.4 miles of U.S. 64/90 in Statesville from U.S. 70 to Northside Drive;
  • 1.4 miles of Alcove Road in Mooresville from Williamson Road to the end of the state maintained highway;
  • 1.1 miles of Indian Trail Road in Iredell County from Chuckwood Road to the dead end;
  • 0.9 miles of Pioneer Road in Iredell County from Sloans Mill Road to N.C. 901;
  • 0.9 miles of Mallard Way in Mooresville from Brawley School Road to the dead end;
  • 0.6 miles of Raider Road in Olin from Jennings Road to Friendship Road;
  • 0.6 miles of Sullivan Farm Road in Iredell County from South Chipley Ford Road to N.C. 115; and
  • 0.4 miles of Winding Shore Lane in Iredell County from Neill Farm Road to the dead end.

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 30 contracts totaling $82.6 million awarded by 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 8 percent, or about $7.2 million, below NCDOT estimates.

Since Gov. Bev Perdue took office in January of 2009, NCDOT has awarded 471 highway contracts totaling $3.6 billion to ensure that all North Carolinians have access to jobs and educational opportunities.

According to the Federal Highway Administration, every $1 million spent on transportation creates 30 jobs, and according to the construction industry, every dollar invested in transportation generates $6 in economic impact.
