The Nebraska City Rotary Club heard an update on Nebraska City capital improvement projects from Nebraska City City Administrator Grayson Path and Nebraska City Construction and Facilities Manager Marty Stovall on Wednesday afternoon.
Stovall started the update with a report on the South Interchange project, which is almost completed.
He said some bump grinding still needs to take place and that the 45 mph speed limit south of town should end soon.
Stovall then talked about the 4th Corso Viaduct project.
“Currently, Hawkins Construction is working on the east side of the project,” said Stovall. “All is going well and according to plan.”
Stovall said the west side is the driving force for the project.
He said that 36,000 cubic yards of dirt have been added to that area and that the construction company is waiting out a settlement period for the added dirt before construction begins on that side of the project.
Stovall said that one Nebraska City woman sent cookies to the 4th Corso Viaduct construction crew on Wednesday morning, which was a change of pace from how construction crews are often treated on road projects.

The North 11th Street bridge replacement and mill and asphalt overlay project is ready to go, said Stovall, and will begin as soon as this year’s AppleJack festival concludes.
Stovall also discussed the overlay on the Steinhart Park bridge, which will start next week and be concluded by Sept. 1.
In addition to road projects around the community, Stovall also touched on the new roof for the east side of the Veterans Memorial Building and the new roof for City Hall and the fire station.
Path talked about other improvements in the community, including the lighting updates at the Softball Complex and the completion of the Steinhart Park seawall.
The Nebraska City Rotary Club meets at noon Wednesdays at the Eagles Club, 600 1st Corso.
Tomorrow’s program (July 25) is scheduled to be a presentation from Nebraska City High School science teacher Tammy Blobaum on her summer experiences with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
Lunch is $9 for guests.
