Fletcher Ave. Bridge to Close February 11

Beginning Monday, February 11, the bridge just east of N. 56th Street on Fletcher Avenue will be closed to traffic. The bridge is expected to remain closed until July 2019. Drivers should use Cornhusker Highway (Hwy 6) as the alternate route. Access to businesses along Fletcher Avenue will be maintained via N. 70th Street.

A separate project to resurface Fletcher Avenue between 56th and 70th streets is being coordinated with this bridge work. The resurfacing will be completed in sections with temporary lane closures, and local access will be maintained as much as possible. It is anticipated the resurfacing will begin in April 2019 and completed in July 2019. Notice will be provided in advance of this work.
