Rowan gets money to repave roads

RALEIGH — N.C. Department of Transportation Secretary Gene Conti has awarded a $2.7 million contract to APAC-Atlantic Inc. Thompson-Arthur Division of Greensboro to resurface nearly 19 miles of roads in Rowan County. The work can start as early as July 30, with final completion set for Nov. 9.
The roads designated for resurfacing include:
• 0.5 miles of Main Street (U.S. 29) from the U.S. 70/U.S. 601 bridge to B Avenue;
• 1.7 miles of Statesville Boulevard from Innes Street to Jake Alexander Boulevard (U.S. 601);
• 10.1 miles of Cool Springs Road from the Iredell County line to N.C. 801;
• 4.7 miles of Patterson Road from Brown Road to N.C. 150/Mooresville Road; and
• 1.7 miles of Providence Church Road from Stokes Ferry Road to Bringle Ferry Road.
Resurfacing these sections of roads will improve safety, make travel more efficient and extend the lifespan of the county’s transportation network. It will also enhance the ride quality for motorists.
This is one of 23 contracts totaling $246.7 million awarded by Conti for highway and bridge projects across North Carolina. NCDOT awarded the contracts to the lowest bidders, as required by state law. The bids received on the projects awarded came in about 5.9 percent, or $15.4 million, below NCDOT estimates.
