HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. -

The North Carolina Department of Transportation wants to replace the bridge on Apple Valley Road in Hendersonville, over Clear Creek.

The agency says the bridge, which was built in 1961, is structurally deficient and functionally obsolete. While the bridge is still safe, it requires extensive maintenance and repair. Lane and shoulder widths also do not meet current standards.

To fix the issues, the NDCOT awarded Apple Tuck and Associates a $464,756 contract to replace the bridge.

Work will start April 15th and should last until March 14, 2014.

This is one of 18 contracts totaling $102 million awarded by NCDOT in February for highway and bridge projects across North Carolina. NCDOT awarded the contracts to the lowest bidders, as required by state law. The bids received on the projects awarded came in about 0.6 percent, or $638,695, below NCDOT estimates.
