The Board of Supervisors has appropriated an additional $304,287 to the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) Asphalt Overlay/Resurfacing projects bringing the total Federal and State funds allocated to $839,708. No County funds are being used for this project.
The County has awarded a contract to Branscome, Inc. for asphalt overlays for portions of Olde Towne Road, Strawberry Plains Road, and part of Lake Powell Road. The additional funds will cover work on approximately 1.2 miles of Ironbound Road beginning at Mid County Park and ending at Five Forks.
The project schedule has been designed to reduce impacts on the public and to complete much of the work prior to Black Friday and the start of the holiday shopping season.
