NORTH WILKESBORO – N.C. Department of Transportation officials recently awarded a $580,000 contract to replace a two-lane bridge on Hardy Road over Hogan Creek in the Siloam Community.
Crews from Smith-Rowe LLC., may begin construction as early as this week on the bridge that will replace the existing 59-year-old bridge which has been closed for almost a year as a safety precaution.
The new bridge will be 105 feet long and will include 10-foot-wide lanes with 4-foot-wide shoulders and an asphalt surface. Crews have until March 30, 2021 to complete the project.
Per state law, the contact has been awarded to the lowest bidder among qualified contractors. Drivers will continue using a local detour until construction is complete.
