RALEIGH TheN.C. Department of Transportationhas awarded a contract to resurface 14 sections of secondary roads in Lee County. The project will resurface just over 4.8 miles of roads.
The sections of roads are along Villanow Drive, Harrington Place, Twin Bridge Circle, Holly Pond Road, Persimmon Path, Sugar Creek Road, Cricket Hearth Road, Sugar Mill Road, Foggy Bottom Road, Mill Pond Road, Cheshire Drive, Cattle Drive and Hibiscus Court. The project will involve asphalt surface treatment and installing pavement markings.
Work for this project is scheduled to wrap up by June 30.
This work is part of NCDOT's yearly resurfacing for roadway preservation. Pavement preservation is like changing the oil in your car as basic maintenance can help more expensive repairs later. It's important to make minor improvements to good roads regularly because it delays major road repairs that are much more costly, time-consuming and disruptive to motorists. This work will repair cracked or weathered pavement, which will extend the life of the roads, reduce further maintenance needs and increase motorist comfort and mobility.
There will be no detour associated with this work. However, motorists are advised to use caution while traveling in the area, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
Riley Paving of Carthage is the contractor for the $300,000 project. The contract was awarded to the lowest bidder as required by state law.
