Portion of Fletcher Avenue Project Rescheduled

The Fletcher Avenue resurfacing project between N. 56th and N. 70th streets has been rescheduled for spring 2020 due to utility work in the area by Black Hills Energy. The resurfacing was originally planned for this fall to coincide with the current replacement of the bridge on Fletcher Avenue just east of North 56th Street. Fletcher Avenue and the bridge are expected to reopen at the end of October.

The bridge project will increase channel capacity and widen the channel through the commercial area east of N. 56th Street and north of Morton Street. The project also includes the reconstruction of storm drains and retaining walls and the stabilization of the banks to help prevent flooding and erosion.

For more information on the project, visit, or contact Ben Higgins, Watershed Management, at 402-441-7589 or For questions about Fletcher Avenue resurfacing, contact Kevin Kruse, JEO Project Manager, at 402-450-3598 or
