$625,854.05 Awarded to Replace Bridge in Lenoir County Wednesday, January 11, 2012

RALEIGH —N.C. Department of Transportation Secretary Gene Conti has awarded a $625,854.05 contract to replace a bridge on Old Jason Road over West Bear Creek in Lenoir County.

Dellinger, Inc. of Monroe was awarded the contract and construction can begin as early as Jan. 30.
 
The contract calls for replacement of the old bridge. The project is scheduled to be completed by Dec. 31.
 
This is one of 30 contracts totaling $82.6 million awarded by Conti for highway and bridge projects across North Carolina. NCDOT awarded the contracts to the lowest bidders, as required by state law. The bids received on the projects awarded came in about 8 percent, or about $7.2 million, below NCDOT estimates.
 
Since Gov. Bev Perdue took office in January of 2009, NCDOT has awarded 471 highway contracts totaling $3.6 billion to ensure that all North Carolinians have access to jobs and educational opportunities.
 
According to the Federal Highway Administration, every $1 million spent on transportation creates 30 jobs, and according to the construction industry, every dollar invested in transportation generates $6 in economic impact.
