receive a citation and the cop stated i was doing 91 on a 55 in construction zone , there were no one on site in the zone , and traffic was heavy due to condition of the road .
Given the speed alleged and the fine amount at stake, I would absolutely retain a local attorney to handle the citation for you. Also be aware that because you were cited for driving more than 30 mph over the speed limit, your appearance in court is mandatory unless an attorney appears on your behalf.

Your going to need to lawyer up. Due to the speed this is considered traffic criminal.

Correct. Your first issue is that it's going to be a mandatory court date because you were also cited for +30 mph. Unless you plan going to court yourself, you must retain counsel for representation and s/he can handle the hearing date in your place. A local attorney is best because s/he will know how the judge feels about +30 cases and work out a resolution to mitigate the ticket.
