The sections of roads are alongVillage Drive, Parkway Drive, Cottage Lane, Colony Lane, Riverview Drive, Riverview Court, Kynwood Drive, Creekview Drive, Oakview Drive, Wood Village Drive, Lauren Taylor Drive, Pineview Drive, Lynn Oaks Drive, Jill Drive, Beech Circle, Tallwood Drive, Race Track Road, West Lake Drive, Friendly Acres Road, Landvale Avenue, Calvert Street, Summervale Drive, Oak Haven Drive and Oak Haven Court.
Work will begin as early as this week and wrap up by June 30.
The project will involve asphalt surface treatment. 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 avoid 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. The contractor crews 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, but there will be lane closures with some delays. 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 $338,000 project. The contract was awarded to the lowest bidder as required by state law.
