Contracts Awarded To Clear Highway 12 In Dare County

Progress continues on clearing N.C. Highway 12 in Dare County, which was damaged last month by Superstorm Sandy.

The state Department of Transportation has awarded two of three contracts to repair the highway. It awarded a contract of almost $900,000 to RPC Contracting to reconstruct the pavement, repair sandbags and construct a dune in Kitty Hawk and repair the pavement on the road as it approaches the temporary bridge on Pea Island.

DOT also awarded a contract of almost $190,000 to Carolina Bridge Co. to repair the tension cables on the bridge deck of the Bonner Bridge, which connects Hatteras Island with the mainland. That work began Monday.

Work is scheduled to begin within the next few days on reconstructing the highway and dunes in Rodanthe on Hatteras Island.
