Highway 57 South Of Stanton To Reopen Friday Late Afternoon

WAYNE – A northeast Nebraska highway will re-open ahead of schedule following the March 2019 flooding that included significant damage to a bridge structure.

According to a release from the Nebraska Department of Transportation, N-57 south of Stanton was originally set to open in Mid-October. NDOT anticipates the roadway to open late Friday afternoon from 4 or 4:30 p.m.

NDOT partnered with contractor, M.E. Collins Contracting Company, Inc., of Wahoo who
received the $2,925,909.50 emergency contract to repair the existing bridge.

Work began on June 19 to re-establish and armor the south bank as pile repair and paving of the damaged approach sections were also included. While the highway is open to traffic, some work remains to complete the project and motorists are reminded to drive cautiously when driving through work zones.

The NDOT thanks all involved for their partnership, effort and dedication on completing repairs in an expedited time period.
