PENDER- The Nebraska Department of Transportation announced North Highway 94 east of Pender reopened Saturday ahead of the scheduled November completion date.

The roadway was damaged during the March flooding, including significant damage to the bridge structure. Work began on July 1 to repair the bridge after flood waters in Logan Creek damaged the west bridge approach and severely scoured the adjacent channel. The flooding undercut the bridge supports, impacting the bridge’s ability to support traffic.

Work includes channel erosion repair, pavement approach replacement, repair of the damaged bridge supports and guardrail repair.
