Open House Set for 10th Street Bridge Replacement

The public is invited to an open house Wednesday, April 26 on replacement of the 10th Street bridge over Salt Creek. The meeting is from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Indian Center, 1100 Military Road. Parking is available on the south side of the building. No formal presentations are planned. Those attending will be able to discuss the construction schedule and project phasing with representatives from Hawkins Construction, Speece Lewis Engineers and City staff.

Work on the project is scheduled to begin May 8 with the closure of 10th Street between Military Road and Sun Valley Blvd. In addition to the bridge replacement, the project includes reconstruction of the Haymarket Park Trail under 10th Street and reconstruction of the intersection at 10th Street and Military Road. The project is expected to be completed in mid-summer 2018.

During the 10th Street closure, access to area residences and businesses will be maintained, but traffic will be detoured to Cornhusker Highway, Antelope Valley Parkway and Military Road. The Haymarket Park Trail will be detoured to 9th Street, Court Street, 10th Street and Military Road.
