The North Carolina Department of Transportation has announced that sections of several secondary roads in Lee County will be repaved beginning later in July.

The $1.3 million contract was awarded to S.T. Wooten Corporation out of Wilson and calls for milling out of old asphalt and resurfacing the following roads:

  • Third Street from dead end to U.S. 421
  • Carthage Street from U.S. 1 to Buffalo Church Road
  • King Farm Road from Blackstone Road to dead end
  • Sion Kelly Road from Harnett County line to South Main Street in Broadway
  • Wild Forest Road from Valley Road to Palmetto Path
  • Longleaf Lane from Wildwood Drive to Debra Lane
  • Debra Lane from Longleaf Lane to Palmetto Path
  • Palmetto Path from Smokey Path to Debra Lane
  • Smokey Path from Palmetto Path to Wild Forest Road

Work on the roads should begin on or around July 26. Drivers should expect lane closures and delays on these routes this summer during construction, according to a DOT press release.
