Street construction update downtown Broken Bow

Staff Writer

According to an email from JEO Consulting Group Friday, Apr. 8, street construction in downtown Broken Bow will continue across 9th avenue along South D street early next week. The contractor has had changes in staff and wasn't able to start work on the water main in that area this week.

9th Avenue north of South B street will be open either Friday, Apr. 9, or Saturday, Apr. 10, to traffic. "This area is completely done except for some railing, and will remain open," Jake Vava, JEO project engineer, said in the email.

Myers Construction continues water main service line hook ups and will be grading and paving next week on 8th avenue (east side of the Square).

A progress meeting will be held at 10:30 a.m., Tuesday, Apr. 12, in the City Council chambers. The public is welcome to attend.
