See, Click, Fix: Potholes among "fixes" in NCDOT road project

Mecklenburg County, NC (WBTV) - One of the spots where at least four potholes at See, Click, Fix have been reported is on Tryon Street from the bridge at I-485 to N.C. 24.

It's one of many Mecklenburg County roads NCDOT will be resurfacing. As a result, the potholes on this section of road will be gone.

Also on the list to be resurfaced, University City Boulevard from the Mecklenburg County line to Old Concord Road. We visited this section of road, and some of the potholes you reported have been patched up, but NCDOT plans on resurfacing this portion of road anyway.

In a NCDOT press release, the agency says it awarded two contracts totaling $13.8 million to Ferebee Corp. of Charlotte for improvements to 49.8 miles of roads in Mecklenburg County.

A $7.8 million contract calls for milling resurfacing and shoulder reconstruction work over 25.8 miles of highway, including:

*2.9 miles of Old States Road (N.C. 115) from just south of the Cornelius city limit to the ire dell County line.

*2.0 miles of U.S. 29 (Tryon Street) from the bridge over I-485 to N.C. 24.

*1.5 miles of N.C. 16 (Providence Road) from Queens Road to Independence Boulevard.

*0.9 miles of Independence Boulevard from Briar Creek Drive to Eastway Drive

*2.4 miles of W.T. Harris Boulevard (N.C. 24) from the railroad bridge to Plaza Road; and 2.4 miles of University City Boulevard (N.C. 49) from the Mecklenburg County line to Old Concord Road.

The other contract is worth $6 million and covers 24 miles over 18 sections of secondary roads, including Lancaster Highway, and Rea, Montrose and Davidson-Concord roads.

Work on both contracts can start as early as October 31, and is scheduled to be complete by June 2012.
