The Nebraska City City Council heard updates on a pair of street projects during its regular meeting at the Bill Davis Room at City Hall on Monday evening.
Marty Stovall, Construction and Facilities Manager for the City of Nebraska City, gave an update on the South 11th Street project, which includes replacement of a bridge over South Table Creek.
The project, which has a completion date in the month of June, 2019, had original plans to begin a portion of the project, mill and overlay of South 11th Street, prior to the beginning of work to replace the bridge.
The thinking was to begin bridge replacement after the conclusion of AppleJack in order to keep the road open for the festival.
Instead of doing the mill and overlay before the bridge replacement, Stovall said the plan now aims to do the mill and overlay work after the bridge is replaced.
Another project that the city is working on could also end up finishing in 2019.
The 7th Street paving and storm sewer improvement project, one of three projects associated with Phase I of the Community Development Black Grant, could finish next year as well.
City Administrator Grayson Path said the hope was to complete the project this year, but acknowledged that it could finish in 2019. The project is currently in the design phase.
Two other projects associated with Phase I of the Community Development Block Grant are also under design with those being the ADA compliant bathrooms at Nuckolls Square Park and the roof replacement of the Veterans Memorial Building on First Corso.
Path said that the city has until December of 2019 to use CDBG funds for the projects and indicated that timeline would be sufficient for the projects to be completed.
