AINSWORTH— Weather permitting, work is scheduled to begin December 8 on the North Loup River Bridge on N-96 west of Burwell, according to the Nebraska Department of Transportation.
Construction of the new permanent bridge will require the placement of a temporary bridge to be constructed across the entire width of the channel. The temporary structure will have a low clearance elevation and boating through the site will be at your own risk. The area will be posted with warning devices to alert recreational and watercraft users. The temporary bridge is anticipated to be removed by early summer of 2020.
The NDOT manager for the project is Carl Hart of Ainsworth.
