Repair work and reconstruction continues to progress on Highway 2 in Lincoln. Constructors, Inc. crews began working on the NDOR project in May with the majority of the 4.4 miles of construction taking place at night to avoid full segment closures during daytime traffic. Road closures are allowed beginning at 7 pm Monday through Friday with the road opening back up at 6 am for public convenience.

The project stretches from Old Cheney Road to the Van Dorn Street intersection along Nebraska 2. The scope of the project includes pavement repair consisting of 5,000 CY concrete patchwork, 4,000 LF concrete curb repair and 19 inlet top replacements along with, bridge repair and 2″ mill and asphalt overlay using 24,500 tons of asphalt.

Constructors wrapped up the pavement repair phase on July 6 and began work on the Milling/Overlay segments from Old Cheney to 27th Street and 27th to Van Dorn.

On any given night the project requires nearly 50 employees from NEBCO companies including Constructors personnel, Trafcon employees and Ready Mixed drivers.
