ROCKINGHAM – A section of the U.S. 74 Bypass around Rockingham will be resurfaced, thanks to a new $5 million contract. 


Barnhill Contracting of Rocky Mount will mill, resurface and restripe the bypass in both directions roughly between Mark’s Creek near Airport Road and just east of U.S. 74 Business. The work will resurface about 11 miles of roadway.

In addition, the contractor will repave sections of Airport, Richmond, Gin Mill and Cargo roads. 

The contractor may start work July 26 and the repaving is expected to last through mid-November on the bypass and until next summer for the secondary roads. Drivers should expect lane closures and delays on these roads during construction.
