NCDOT Awards Contract for Access Route to Casino in Cherokee County

NCDOT LogoThe N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded a contract to build an access road from U.S. 19/74/129 and Regal Road to the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians Tribal Boundary in Cherokee County. Once completed, the nearly half-mile road will create access to a new casino expected to bring jobs and revenue to western North Carolina.

The road will be part of a new route to the casino at the intersection of U.S. 19/74/129 and Regal Road near Murphy. The route will include the new access road, a roundabout providing access to future routes, and a bridge to U.S. 19/74/129. NCDOT awarded the contract to build the bridge in January.

Adams Contracting of Robbinsville was awarded the $4,365,362 contract for the access road project, which includes grading, paving, drainage and installing retaining walls. Work on the project can begin as soon as late April, with all work except vegetation establishment finished by mid-December.

This is one of the 25 road and bridge contracts worth $71 million recently awarded by NCDOT for projects across North Carolina. The contracts were awarded to the lowest bidders, as required by state law. The low bids received on the projects were 1.2 percent, or $845,000 below NCDOT estimates.
