Rowan roads to be resurfaced

N.C. Department of Transportation Chief Operating Officer Jim Trogdon announced today that 20 contracts totaling $159 million have been awarded for highway and bridge projects across North Carolina, including one project funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
NCDOT awarded the contracts to the lowest bidders, as required by state law.
The local projects are located in Davidson, Davie and Rowan counties.
The bids received on all 20 projects advertised came in 6.7 percent, or about $11.4 million, below NCDOT estimates.
According to the Federal Highway Administration, every $1 million spent on transportation creates 30 jobs, and according to the construction industry, every dollar invested in transportation generates $6 in economic impact.
The following roads in Rowan County will be resurfaced:
• U.S. 601 from the Davie County line to West Innes Street;
• N.C. 801 from U.S. 70 to the Davie County line;
• Barger Road (S.R. 2377) from Stokes Ferry Road (S.R. 1004) to Gold Knob Road (S.R. 2375);
• Chapel Street (S.R. 1464) from U.S. 29 to Ryder Avenue (S.R. 1210);
• Fisher Road (S.R. 2320) from N.C. 152 East to Crescent Road (2319);
• Graham Road (S.R. 1547) from N.C. 150 to N.C. 801;
• Julian Road (S.R. 2528) from the bridge at I-85 to Old Concord Road (S.R. 1002);
• Seventh Street Extension (S.R. 1914) from Old Mocksville Road (S.R. 1910) to the Spencer city limit;
• Third Street (S.R. 2037) and Hollywood Drive (S.R. 1915) from U.S. 29 to Ridge Road (S.R. 1021); and
• White Road (S.R. 1737) from N.C. 150 to Sherrills Ford Road (S.R. 1526).
The following roads in Davie County will be resurfaced:
• U.S. 64 from U.S. 158 to John Crotts Road (State Road 1602);
• N.C. 801 from U.S. 601 to the bridge at the Rowan County line; and
• Center Street (S.R. 1819) from U.S. 601 to the Cooleemee city limit.
The $4 million contract was awarded to APAC-Atlantic Inc. Thompson-Arthur Division of Greensboro. It includes a total of 34 miles of roads. Work may begin as early as March 17, with final completion set for Oct. 31.
Resurfacing these sections of roadway will extend the lifespan of the pavement, improve safety and provide a smoother ride for motorists.
