A $3.6 million contract has been awarded to a Raleigh company to improve two sections of U.S. 64 totaling almost 12 miles in Tyrrell and Washington counties.
The state Department of Transportation awarded Rose Brothers Paving Co. of Raleigh the contract to work on two sections of the highway. The project can begin as soon as June 1 and is expected to be complete by Sept. 30, 2022.
A 7-mile section just west of Columbia in Tyrrell County and a 4.75-mile section between Millpond Road and Northline Road east of Plymouth in Washington County will undergo milling, resurfacing and remarking of the roadway.
The Washington County segment also includes a layer of friction course, while the Tyrrell County segment includes replacing and upgrading 20,000 linear feet of guardrail.
