The Fletcher Avenue resurfacing project between N. 56th and N. 70th streets has been rescheduled for spring 2020 due to utility work in the area by Black Hills Energy. The resurfacing was originally planned for this fall to coincide with the current replacement of the bridge on Fletcher Avenue just east of North 56th Street. Fletcher Avenue and the bridge are expected to reopen at the end of October. Some base repair work will be done this fall to have a better driving surface until resurfacing next spring.
The bridge project will increase channel capacity and widen the channel through the commercial area east of N. 56th Street and north of Morton Street. The project also includes the reconstruction of storm drains and retaining walls and the stabilization of the banks to help prevent flooding and erosion.
