Crews may begin as early as late March and are expected to be complete by October on work to extend the life of two bridges in southeastern North Carolina.
The state Department of Transportation has awarded a bridge preservation contract to Buckeye Bridge LLC contractors to rehabilitate a Duplin County bridge on N.C. 903 over Interstate 40 constructed in 1987, and a Pender County bridge on U.S. 117 over I-40, built in 1982. The improvements will include repairing the bridge deck surface.
The Canton-based company was awarded the contract for more than $926,000 earlier this month.
