Milling work underway on East 5th Street PDF Print E-mail

The stretch of East 5th Street from Leech to Highway 61 is closed this week as milling of the old asphalt surface began Monday by Western Engineering of North Platte, a subcontractor on the pro­ject. The street will remain closed during the milling process, which takes up the surface with the machine above, grinds it and saves it for later use. After all the asphalt is removed, the crew will use the millings as part of the foundation dirt work. A new seven-inch layer of concrete will follow. Some drainage work preceded the milling on East 5th. Similar work in the $1.821 million project will also be done this year on a portion of East 9th St., and all of East 12th St. Access to businesses along the south side of East 5th St., is available via the newly opened East 4th St. On the north side, businesses can be reached off Highway 61, through the alley west of True Value or off Longhorn St. (Republican photo)
