NORFOLK, Neb. -- The city of Norfolk received another update about two road projects in the city.

Information on Benjamin Ave. was similar to March's meeting.

Bo Atkins, project manager for BX Civil and Construction, said despite recent slip-ups, progress is still on track.

Atkins acknowledged the setbacks they've faced including a waterline spill, saying they are determined to get construction done in a safe, but timely manner.

"I know it's taking awhile," Atkins said. "We have troubles all the time, it's construction, so we get caught up on things that break water mains. We try not to do that I promise...but sometimes it happens, and we try to fix it as quickly as possible."

Atkins predicts all work on Benjamin Ave. will conclude by the beginning of November, with the full road being able to drive on by mid-October.

Current construction on Benjamin's north side is expected to conclude by the end of June, with the south side beginning construction shortly after.

As for the project on First St., drivers should be aware of changes coming Monday.

Logan Angstead, a field engineer for United Contractors, said on Apr. 24 the intersection at Norfolk Ave. and First Street will become a single-lane one-way street. This means cars will not be able to turn from Norfolk Ave. south onto First, nor will First St. drivers be able to turn west onto Norfolk Ave. This is so workers can put in a new sewer main. Once this has been completed in two to three weeks' time the roadway will return to its current state.

"The Bridge and reopening on First Street that's looking like the end of July, the first week in August, roughly," Angstead said. "Again things like that may change. I'm not going to say it's my best-case scenario, it's my realistic scenario."
