Cornhusker between 70th and 84th

May 7, 2013

Beginning Monday May 13, 2013, Cornhusker Highway will be closed east of 70th Street to approximately one half mile west of 84th Street. The pavement leading up to the bridges over the BNSF railroad and North Cotner Boulevard is in need of repair. Cornhusker Highway is one lane in each direction at this location, and repair of the pavement east of 70th Street will require a road closure. Assuming no unforeseen delays, the contractor will have two weeks to complete this work and open Cornhusker Highway to through traffic by Friday, May 24, 2013.

During construction in the area of these bridges, Cornhusker Highway traffic will be routed to these detours:

  • Eastbound: South on 70th Street to North Cotner Boulevard, North Cotner Boulevard to Cornhusker Highway
  • Westbound: West on North Cotner Boulevard to North 70th Street, North on 70th Street to Cornhusker Highway
