The Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) announced the opening of the N-11 bridge, south of Butte, according to the Nebraska Department of Transportation.
The bridge has been closed since March 13, 2019 when it was severely damaged by ice and flooding.
The repair work included replacing
the concrete deck, repairing and/or replacing damaged girders, and shifting the bridge back into the correct
position. Kiewit Infrastructure Company of Omaha was the contractor
for the repairs, estimated at $8 million, and began work on June 24, 2019.
While other work continues at the site, traffic may be reduced to one-lane and controlled by flaggers.
Motorists are advised to use caution while driving through construction
zones and always wear a seat belt.
NDOT would like to thank all its partners for their tireless work to open these critical corridors for the people of Nebraska. Work continues to restore normal operations in other areas of the state. We will continue to update the public as we complete projects and resume normal traffic operations.
