RALEIGH, N.C. – Deborah Todd, president of STATE Contracting, Inc., has announced that the privately held firm, specializing in site development and roadway improvement, has completed a new parking lot as well as symmetrical widening, patching and overlays to the existing roads as part of the opening of Durham County Library’s South Regional Branch, located off NC 54 at 4505 S. Alston Ave. on the historic site of the Old Lowe’s Grove School. STATE’s subcontracting work, awarded by Bar Construction of Greensboro (Durham County was owner of the project), was approximately $330,000.
The South Regional Branch is one of eight facilities that compose the Durham County Library system. The 27,300-square-foot facility includes a public meeting room that seats 100 and can be accessed after business hours, a children’s program room that seats 30, and two tutoring rooms. The collection includes more than 100,000 volumes of reading material. For more information, visit http://www.durhamcountylibrary.org/locations/sr.php.
“This new regional branch needed several upgrades for vehicles due to the expected number of patrons in this high-growth area near Research Triangle Park, as it lies near Interstate 40 and NC 55,” said Todd. “At the same time, we understood the desire to preserve the area as much as possible to retain the history of the Lowe’s Grove and Parkwood communities located near it. We were pleased to achieve that goal to the satisfaction of many as well as help accommodate the large volume of traffic that uses the library for research, with convenient access and plenty of parking for visitors to enjoy all what the facility has to offer.”
