Highway 13 bridge being repaired

HADAR, NE — It was an ugly scene on March 15.  The Highway 13 bridge east of Hadar had collapsed and the North Fork of the Elkhorn River had left its banks and spread across nearby fields.

The view of the area is better this week.  The river is back within its banks and crews are working to rebuild the broken bridge.  The Nebraska Department of Transportation says Herbst Construction of Iowa started work on the road and bridge at the end of May.

The Department of Transportation’s website says the project is expected to be completed in November. The project has a budget of over $2.8 million.

The bridge is about four miles north of Norfolk.
