NCDOT Awards $1.2 Million Contract to Replace Bridge in Cumberland County Tuesday, January 08, 2013

RALEIGH — Work can begin as early as March 1 on the replacement of a bridge over Little Rockfish Creek over Strickland Bridge Road near Hope Mills in Cumberland County.

The N.C. Department of Transportation awarded a $1.2 million contract to S. T. Wooten Corp. of Wilson to replace the bridge.

The bridge was built in 1951 and is rated as structurally deficient and functionally obsolete. That means it remains safe, but is in need of repairs, and had been built to bridge design standards no longer in use.

Work is expected to be complete except for landscaping by Sept. 1.
 
This is one of 23 contracts totaling $145.7 million awarded by NCDOT in December 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 9.8 percent, or $15.8 million, below NCDOT estimates.
