The North Carolina Department of Transportation says bridges will be replaced in four counties in Eastern Carolina, while part of Highway 12 in Dare County is going to be resurfaced.
Work on all of the projects may begin as early as March 29.
A Williamston company won the contract to replace the bridge on
Grabtown Road over Roquist Creek, which is west of Windsor in Bertie County. Roberson Contracting Inc. of Williamston won the $670,118 contract. The bridge replacement project is expected to be complete by October 1.
A company from South Carolina has until May 2011 to complete replacing the bridge on NC 99 over Pungo Creek, south of Belhaven in Beaufort County. The $3.8 million contract was awarded to Carolina Bridge Company Inc. of Greenville, S.C.
