GENOA – The Nebraska Department of Transportation has set a date on repairing a bridge near Genoa which was damaged during the March flooding.
The NDOT announced in a press release on Thursday that the contract to repair the overflow bridge for the Loup River on Highway 39, south of Genoa, has been awarded to Simon Contractor’s of North Platte. The contract was for $2,961,400, and work is expected to begin on June 1st to repair the bridge.
The NDOT says that the contractor will install a single lane ‘shoofly’ with a traffic signal to allow traffic to move through the construction zone temporarily while the bridge is being replaced. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year, and motorists are reminded to use caution while driving through construction zones and to expect delays.
