Precast concrete manufacturer Smith-Midland Corporation says that its Reidsville Plant has signed the largest contract in its history to produce precast concrete soundwall and J-J Hooks concrete barrier for a North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) project.
The $6.6 million contract for a section of the new Interstate 74 Northern Beltway around Winston-Salem in Forsyth County, NC, will require more than 330,000 sq. ft. of soundwall with an ashlar stone finish on both sides of the wall along with more than 850 precast soundwall columns, as well as more than 31,000 linear feet of J-J Hooks concrete barrier, the company said in a May 10 statement.
The project’s general contractor for this project is Webber, LLC, a division of Ferrovial Construction U.S.
“The scope of this project is what we envisioned when we built the Reidsville, North Carolina plant in 2019,” Smith-Midland president and CEO Ashley Smith said in the statement.
“At 15,000 sq. ft., this facility has more capacity to take on contracts like this one and we look forward to securing more, larger contracts in the future.”
