Highway 30 Improvement Project To Being Tuesday

COLUMBUS- Weather permitting, construction work will begin Tuesday on the Highway 30 improvement project in Columbus, according to the Nebraska Department of Transportation.

The westbound lanes from 16th Avenue to E. 12th Avenue will close at 8 p.m. While the westbound lanes are closed, traffic will operate in two-lane, two-way configuration in the existing eastbound lanes. During construction, temporary turn signals and other temporary traffic control devices and traffic patterns will be in effect, including lane shifts. Access to all properties will remain open during construction, however intermittent driveway and intersection closures are expected.

Motorists are reminded to drive cautiously in and near work zones, to buckle up, and to put phones down.
