CONCORD – The N.C. Department of Transportation recently awarded a pair of contracts to improve conditions on more than 45 segments of secondary roads throughout Cabarrus County.

  • Peach Orchard Road
  • Clarke Creek Parkway
  • Walden Ponds Thruway

The second, a smaller asphalt surface treatment project, will improve nine secondary routes in various locations. The contractor, Whitehurst Paving Co. out of Richmond, will use this pavement preservation method on these roads:

  • Jim Kiser Road
  • Marshall Drive
  • Cal Bost Road
  • Manassas Drive
  • Moose Road
  • Lacewood Court
  • Heglar Road
  • Ward Avenue

Both projects can get underway as soon as mid-April. The larger project is anticipated to be finished in the fall of 2025, and the smaller project should take about a year to complete.
