Maintenance work on "O" Street from 45th Street to Wedgewood Drive may cause traffic delays for motorists for the rest of July and early August. The contractor will be pressure cleaning and sealing the concrete surface of the roadway. Single lane closures will be required with most of the work done during the late evening and overnight hours to help minimize traffic disruptions.
The equipment used to clean the street will be in the driving lanes moving at a maximum speed of five mph. Motorists' patience is greatly appreciated during the maintenance project.
The contractor will schedule the sealing work after the surface has been cleaned and allowed to dry. The application of the sealer will require lane closures for up to eight hours.
Caspers Construction is the contractor. The project is funded with State highway maintenance funds through the Nebraska Department of Roads.
