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.
“Resurfacing these sections of roadway will extend the lifespan of the pavement, improve safety and provide a smoother ride for motorists,” NCDOT officials said in a press release.
The following roads are being resurfaced:

  • 14.8 miles of N.C. 27 from the South Fork River bridge in Lincolnton to N.C. 18 near the Cleveland County line;
  • 1.7 miles of Asbury Church Road in Boger City from Old Mill Road to Furnace Road;
  • 1.2 miles of Old N.C. 150 (Crouse Road) in Crouse from 250 feet southeast of N.C. 150 to 400 feet southwest of N.C. 150;
  • 2.8 miles of Amity Church Road in Denver from N.C. 73 to King Wilkinson Road;
  • 1 mile of Furnace Road Extension in Denver from Asbury Church Road to King Wilkinson Road;
  • 1 mile of Optimist Club Road in Denver from St. James Church Road to Triangle Circle;
  • 0.9 mile of Ivey Memorial Church Road in Lincoln County from Buffalo Shoals Road to the Catawba County line; and
  • 0.8 mile of Lithia Inn Road in Boger City from the U.S. 321 overpass to N.C. 27.
