Nearly 70 miles of central North Carolina roadways will be improved thanks to several contracts recently awarded by the N.C. Department of Transportation. The projects call for milling and resurfacing and, in most locations, shoulder grading or reconstruction, said NCDOT on Thursday. They are all either getting underway or set to begin as early as May 1.
In Moore County, 2.2 miles of U.S. 1. will be worked on. Fred Smith Company was awarded a $1.16 million contract, and the work is scheduled to be complete by mid-November 2021.
