NCDOT Awards $1.3 Million to Replace Bridges on Little River Road in the Village of Flat Rock Friday, February 15, 2013

RALEIGH — The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded a $1.3 million contract to Devere Construction Co. of Alpena, Mich. to replace the bridges on Little River Road over Mud Creek near the Village of Flat Rock in Henderson County.

The bridges were built in the 1960s and need to be replaced due to their age and condition. One of the bridges is considered structurally deficient and functionally obsolete.

That means it is still safe, but has been in deteriorating condition and was built to bridge design standards that are no longer used.

Work can start as early as March 15 and is scheduled for completion by Oct. 1.

This project is part of the NCDOT’s $450 million state funded bridge plan for 2011-13, which calls for preservation, repairs or replacement of bridges statewide.

This is one of 24 contracts totaling $59.9 million awarded by NCDOT in January 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 4.8 percent, or $3.1 million, below NCDOT estimates.
