Weather permitting, work is scheduled to begin the week of June 13 on N-95, starting at Chambers and extending 11.3 miles west to the junction of N-11 and N-95, according to the Nebraska Department of Roads.
According to a press release, Vontz Paving, Inc., of Hastings, Nebraska, is the prime contractor for the $2,704,943 project. Work will include drainage structure repair, milling and asphaltic concrete overlay, grading and erosion control.
During construction, there will be a 12-foot width limit. One-lane traffic will be maintained through the work zone using flaggers and a pilot car. The highway improvement project is anticipated to be completed in late September.
The Department of Roads' project engineer is H. Gene Colfack of O'Neill. Motorists are urged to use caution while driving through highway work zones and to remember that speeding fines are doubled when workers are present.
