Motorists in the Norfolk, NE area will see a flurry of road construction work begin
Three projects on the city's east side will all begin Monday, weather permitting.
Two stoplights in downtown Norfolk will also be shut down beginning Monday.
Another project further east in Stanton and Cuming counties will also start.
The Nebraska Department of Roads says a new two-lane roundabout at the intersection of Norfolk Avenue and Victory Road is part of a larger project to widen highway 35 in the Norfolk area to four lanes.
And, as part of that same project, construction work is also set to begin today along highway 35 near Woodland Park.
In addition, workers are expecting to begin paving the southbound lanes on a two mile stretch of highway 35 that links Norfolk Avenue with highway 275.
Meanwhile further inside the city of Norfolk, the stoplights along Norfolk Avenue at the intersections of 2nd street and 3rd street will be covered beginning Monday.
A recent traffic study indicated the lights are no longer needed at those intersections.
They will be permanently removed this summer.
And if you're traveling further east of Norfolk, roads crews will begin working today on an asphalt resurfacing project along a 10 mile stretch of highway 275 between Pilger and Wisner Nebraska.
Motorists traveling in these areas are urged to use caution when traveling through these construction zones.
