Posted August 1
Chatham County, N.C. — Sections of U.S. Highway 15-501 and U.S. Highway 64 in Chatham County, along with nine secondary roads, will be resurfaced in the coming months, officials announced Tuesday.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation has awarded a $12.3 million contract to S.T. Wooten Corp. Inc. of Wilson to resurface a total 35.3 miles.
Highlights of the resurfacing include:
- A nine-mile stretch of U.S. 15-501 between Rock Spring Cemetery and Manns Chapel Roads
- U.S. 15-501 between the Lee County line and the Rocky River Bridge, south of Center Grove Church Road
- U.S. 64, in both directions for about three miles, between the Wake County line and Farrington Road
The work will begin on Aug. 28 and could take one year to complete.
