DINWIDDIE, Va. — At its monthly meeting, the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) awarded a contract worth approximately $7.1 million to Allan Myers VA, Inc., of Glen Allen to pave a segment of Interstate 85 north in Dinwiddie County.

The work will resurface approximately seven miles of I-85 north between Hamilton Arms Road (mile marker 48) and mile marker 56.
