RALEIGH — The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded a $1.3 million contract to Devere Construction Co. of Alpena, Mich. to replace the bridges on Little River Road over Mud Creek near the Village of Flat Rock in Henderson County.
The bridges were built in the 1960s and need to be replaced due to their age and condition. One of the bridges is considered structurally deficient and functionally obsolete.
