43 Miles of Roadway in Hoke, Scotland Counties to Be Repaved

LAURINBURG – Sections of U.S. 401 in Hoke County and several exits along the U.S. 74 Bypass in Scotland County will get fresh pavement under a new contract.

Barnhill Contracting Co. of Rocky Mount last week recently received a $5.4 million contract from the N.C. Department of Transportation to resurface six miles of U.S. 401 between the Scotland County line and Crawford Wright Road in Hoke County.

The contractor also will repave the on and off ramps and loops on the U.S. 74 Bypass at exit 182 (N.C. 79) and exits 184 (South Main Street) through 190 (Airport Road) in Scotland County. The highway along those exits has been previously repaved.

Additionally, Barnhill crews will resurface 23 sections of secondary roads across both counties. All told, 43 miles of roadway will be improved.

Barnhill, which will start work later this summer, has an August 2019 deadline to finish.

This was one of 25 road and bridge contracts recently awarded by NCDOT. Per state law, they went to the lowest qualified bidder for each project. The contracts are worth nearly $630 million.
