The project will be open to bids next week with work to start as soon as early summer and to be finished within two years.
Much of the funding - about $41.5 million - is coming from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
“This project is big a win for North Carolina. It provides a state of the art facility that will better coordinate key state services and is ready to put people to work in much needed jobs,” Gov. Perdue said.
