SHALLOTTE – A contract has been awarded to improve the Brunswick County rest area in Shallotte.
The contract worth $981,000 was awarded to Kowen General Contractors earlier this month.
Construction on the upgraded facility on U.S. 17 can begin as early as mid-October. At that time, the rest area will close to the public and remain closed until construction is complete in spring 2024. Renovations include a new family restroom and water line, as well as updated drainage and landscaping.
The traveling public can find other North Carolina rest areas and Welcome Centers at this website.
