NCDOT Awards $1.2 Million Contract for N.C. Railroad Curve Realignment in Davidson County Tuesday, June 11, 2013

RALEIGH — The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded a $1.2 million contract to Faulconer Construction Co. of Cary to realign a curve of the North Carolina Railroad main line in Davidson County.  The curve is located under the newly completed I-85 bridges over the Yadkin River.
 
This project is part of the Piedmont Improvement Program, a series of rail projects that will improve safety and mobility on the corridor between Raleigh and Charlotte. PIP projects are primarily funded by the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and will be completed by Sept. 30, 2017. Citizens can view a map of the project corridor here.
 
Work can begin as early as July 1, and is scheduled to be completed by June 1, 2014. Reforestation and vegetation establishment can continue through Nov. 28, 2014.
 
This is one of 20 contracts totaling $165.1 million awarded by NCDOT in May 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 13.5 percent, or $25.8 million, below NCDOT estimates.
