30th Avenue overpass

This summer, the two-lane 30th Avenue overpass in west Kearney was reconfigured into three lanes: two for southbound traffic and one for northbound. In the city of Kearney’s long-range Six-Year Plan, the overpass would be expanded to four lanes.

KEARNEY — The Kearney City Council reviewed the city’s street construction plan for 2020 on Tuesday and also reviewed the six-year plan of future street projects.

The Nebraska Department of Transportation requires counties and cities to develop and file street plans for the year ahead — called the One-Year Plan — and plans for the future — called the Six-Year Plan.

Contained on Kearney’s one-year plan for 2020 with a total cost of $4,173,000 are:

- 31st Street, from Avenues D to I, (1,872 feet), $1,030,000

- Avenue A from 25th to 27th streets (700 feet), $485,000
