The reconstruction of the intersection of B and Jeffers streets in North Platte is complete, and the street is now open to through traffic.

Correspondingly, the C street intersection is closed, the Nebraska Department of Transportation said.

Paulsen, Inc. of Cozad is the contractor for the project, which consists of nine blocks of U.S. Highway 83/Jeffers St. through the middle of town.

Work on intersections is part of the complete reconstruction of the street, which is expected to be complete in August if it goes as planned.

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