NCDOT Awards Contract for Road Improvements in Burke County

Shelby -The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded a contract for the widening, milling, shoulder reconstruction and resurfacing of 19 miles of Burke County roads.

The project includes improvements to three sections of U.S. 64, two sections of U.S. 70, one section each of N.C. 114, U.S. 64/70 and U.S. 64/70 Business, and 24 sections of secondary roads. Maymead, Inc., of Mountain City, Tenn., was awarded the $2,881,906 contract.

Construction on the Burke County road improvements can begin as early as mid-March, with the project scheduled for completion by mid-October.

This was one of 28 contracts worth $282.3 million recently awarded by NCDOT for highway, bridge and ferry projects across North Carolina. NCDOT awarded the contracts to the lowest bidders, as required by state law. The winning bids for the projects came in almost five percent, or $14.2 million, below NCDOT estimates.
