Stanly County drivers will soon have a smoother ride on approximately six miles of roadway, thanks to a $2.2 million contract the N.C. Department of Transportation awarded this week.

Improvements in the contract include segments of N.C. Highway 24-27 between Jeffries and Leonard streets, and about 4.5 miles of Old Salisbury Road between Austin and Millingport roads.

The contractor, NJR Group of Albemarle, can start the project as early as mid-April 2023 and finish by Oct. 8, 2024.
