The street construction season will begin soon in North Platte, and foremost in the plans is the replacement of utility lines beneath Jeffers St. in the center of town.

Last year, the work on Jeffers St. was completed from Leota nearly to B St. This year, work on Jeffers will proceed from B St. north to 1st St. One lane of the street will be closed to vehicles during construction and intersections are also being rebuilt as the project moves along.

Also, work is planned this summer on Ninth St. from Dolson west to Buffalo. New streets are planned for the Mulligan Meadows residential development that is slowly taking shape north of the city cemetery, next to Rivers Edge Golf Course.

Also, Golden Road will be improved near the Sustainable Beef plant. More streets are slated in the Twin Rivers industrial park, located near the southeast corner of the city.

Renovation will begin Monday, March 13, on a street not listed on the one-year plan — Commerce Drive — which leads to Love’s Truck Stop from Newberry. The street is sagging due to underlying sandy soil. That renovation is expected to take five weeks, during which traffic will be limited to one lane.

Uratek, USA, a Texas company that specializes in soil stabilization, is in charge of the project.

Preliminary design work is planned this year for new pavement on Dewey St. from Leota St. to the S curve.

And, another street is planned in the city’s well-established industrial park south of Philip Ave, with design scheduled to be complete this summer.
