RALEIGH TheN.C. Department of Transportationrecently awarded a contract to resurface15 secondary roads throughout Montgomery County. The work will include resurfacing and pavement markings. Crews can begin as early as Oct. 26, and work is anticipated to be complete by June 2016, weather permitting.
The project will involve asphalt surface treatment and 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 detours associated with the work, but lane closures may shift traffic patterns or cause congestion at times. Motorists are advised to use caution, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
Riley Paving of Carthage is the contractor for the $486,565 project, which was awarded to the lowest bidder as required by state law.
