BEATRICE – Street maintenance work in Beatrice has been rescheduled, due to the recent wet weather.
A process called armor-coating will be applied to some east Beatrice Streets. But, instead of getting underway next week, City Engineer James Burroughs says the start date has been pushed back to the first of next month.
:16 “the date change”
The project will be done by TopKote, Inc., of Yankton, South Dakota. Burroughs talks about the street sections that will get the oil and aggregate treatment this year.
:16 “to Lincoln”
Burroughs says when the work gets underway June 1st, residents will be asked to keep vehicles off the street sections where the maintenance is being done.
:24 “we can”
The hope is to complete the armor-coating in one day. The city has been doing the maintenance work section-by-section in the city. Burroughs says this year the city is undertaking the third of five designated sections.
Beatrice Mayor Stan Wirth says the city’s street department will also be doing some painting of traffic lane stripes in the coming weeks.
:04 “outlying areas”
Mayor Wirth says although rain has caused some delays, work to complete a new intersection at 6th and Industrial Row in north Beatrice has been ahead of schedule. He says with another week of construction the project should be close to completed.
A major street project this summer will focus on North 2nd, between Court and Grant Streets. The brick part of that street between Court and Ella will be re-set, and the section between Ella and Grant will get a new concrete surface.
