BEATRICE – U.S. Highway 136 resurfacing is focusing on the east edge of Beatrice, this week.
It’s part of a nearly 8-mile project between Beatrice and the junction of U.S. Highway 136 and Nebraska Highway 4, east of the city.
Traffic is being maintained with the use of a pilot car and flaggers, reduced to one lane in areas. Bridge repair work less than a mile east of Beatrice also cuts traffic to one lane. New asphalt surface was being installed this week at the east edge of Beatrice, near Beatrice High School. There is reduced traffic speed in the project area.
