Why is Gordon Road between North College and Market Street being repaved?

Q. Why is Gordon Road between North College and Market Street being repaved now without the re-widening project that is slated by DOT?

A. Division Maintenance Engineer David Thomas, of the N.C. Department of Transportation, said the current contract for Gordon Road includes preserving the existing pavement and adding two-foot paved shoulders for safety enhancement “where there are none now.”

The current Gordon Road project runs from Kerr Avenue to just east of Netherlands Drive and is part of 49 miles of resurfacing in Brunswick, Hew Hanover and Pender counties, added Kerry Cross, NCDOT resident engineer.

S.T. Wooten Corp., from Wilson, is the prime contractor on the $14 million dollar resurfacing project.

The project includes some milling, some 2-foot widening, resurfacing and re-marking of the section of Gordon Road in question, Cross said.

    I know nothing about the company that is doing the re-paving, but what they have done so far is some of the roughest and bumpiest new paving I have ever driven on. Coming off of North College at Exit 420 B to follow onto 117, there are so many dips and bumps it is almost unsafe. It is a shame that our taxpayer dollars are being spent on such an inferior product.
