DOT to resurface 23 miles of Moore County roads

RALEIGH — The North Carolina Department of Transportation has started work to resurface 23.8 miles of secondary roads in Moore County.

The sections of roads are along Youngs Road, Shaw Road, Kirk Road, Simmons Road, Hoffman Road, Upper Road, Elizabeth Road, Shady Grove Road, Spring Lake Road and Johnson Grove Road.

dotThere will be no detour associated with this work. However, motorists are advised to use caution while traveling in the area, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.

Waugh Asphalt of Franklinville is the contractor for the $627,755 project. The contract was awarded to the lowest bidder as required by state law.

Work for this project is scheduled to wrap up by June 30. It is part of NCDOT’s yearly resurfacing for roadway preservation. Pavement preservation is like changing the oil in your car as basic maintenance can help prevent more expensive repairs later. It’s important to make minor improvements to good roads regularly because it delays major road repairs that are much more costly, time-consuming and disruptive to motorists. This work will repair cracked or weathered pavement, which will extend the life of the roads, reduce further maintenance needs and increase motorist comfort and mobility.
