ROBESON COUNTY, NC (WMBF) - The NC Department of Transportation awarded a contract to repair areas in Robeson County.

According to the NCDOT, the $6.8 million contract will resurface six miles of Interstate 95, and rehab surfaces on four I-95 bridges in the county. Crews will mill, and resurface the road between mile markers 16 to 22.

Construction crews will also work on the decks of four bridges between mile markers 18 and 19 over the Lumber River, and the CSX railroad.

Officials say Barnhill Contracting Company of Rocky Mount is this project's contractor. Work can begin as early as June 29, and is expected to be complete by September of 2016.

Robeson County's project is one of 17 road, bridge and pedestrian projects awarded contracts by the DOT. The contracts were given to the lowest qualified bidder, according to a NCDOT news release. They are worth $315.4 million, which is $1 million above engineers' estimates.
