Paving Work Progress Being Seen in Beatrice

BEATRICE – A new road surface has been installed on North 5th Street in Beatrice, on the stretch near the Beatrice Post Office, Beatrice Middle School and Carnegie Building.  New asphalt has been installed on High Street, as well.

Mayor Stan Wirth says that was a high priority project, with the new school year approaching.  Pavers Inc., of Waverly was hired by the city to resurface several sections of asphalt streets this summer.
