State to resurface more than 24 miles of Lincoln Co. roads
More than 24 miles of roadways in Lincoln County are being resurfaced starting this month, thanks to a $2.9 million contract recently awarded for the repairs by the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
In total, 24.2 miles of roads, including a stretch of N.C. 27 and seven sections of secondary roads, throughout the county will receive the upgrades, with work to be completed by mid-June.
The contract was awarded to J.T. Russell and Sons of Albemarle.
