DANA — The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded a contract for improvements to the bridge over Saconon Creek on Stepp Mill Road in Henderson County. The project includes grading, drainage, paving, installing a retaining wall and retrofitting the existing structure, which was built in 1958.

Work on the project can begin as early as March 31, with all work except vegetation establishment completed by June 2015.
