SCHUYLER – A roadway in Schuyler that has been closed since the March flooding will soon be reopened.
The Nebraska Department of Transportation says that Highway 15 south of Schuyler will reopen to north and south traffic on June 1st, weather permitting. The bridge located at Reference Post 105.11 will be open to one-lane traffic, which will be controlled by using temporary traffic signals.
Work on the highway is being conducted by M.E. Collins Contracting, and will continue until all of the flood damage has been repaired within the limits of the right-of-way. The NDOT says that lane closures and flagging operations will be in place as necessary to complete the construction.
The NDOT also reminds motorists to drive cautiously through construction zones, and to expect delays.
