NCDOT Awards Contract for Yancey County Road Resurfacing

SHELBY-TheN.C. Department of Transportationhas awarded a resurfacing contract that will improve nearly six miles of Yancey County roads.

A $780,000 contract was awarded to Rogers Group of Nashville, Tenn., for the project. Work can begin as early as March 15, 2015, with final completion scheduled for Oct. 15, 2015.

The following sections of road will be resurfaced in this project:

  • N.C. 80 South from Mile 1 north of Hickory Springs Road to U.S. 19 East
  • U.S. 19 West from Bent Creek Road to Holloway Road
  • Micaville Loop from N.C. 80 Southto U.S. 19 East

These roads will be open to traffic throughout the project with flagmen directing motorists through the construction site when lane closures are in place.

NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.

This is one of the nine road and bridge contracts worth $173.4 million recently awarded by NCDOT for projects across North Carolina. The contracts were awarded to the lowest bidders, as required by state law. The low bids received on the projects were about $7.9 million below NCDOT estimates.
