Smith-Midland Corporation (OTCQX: SMID) project announcement. The Smith-Columbia plant in Hopkins, South Carolina has signed with Dragados USA, Inc., a top 10 North American transportation contractor, to produce noise wall and posts for the NCDOT US 70 project in Durham County, North Carolina.

The $136.12 million road project will convert approximately 5 miles of U.S. 70 – from Lynn Road in Durham, NC to west of T.W. Alexander Drive into a freeway.
