Work to Begin on Highway US-6, McCook to Indianola

Work to Begin on Highway US-6, McCook to Indianola

September 22, 2016 (McCook, Neb.) — Weather permitting, work is scheduled to begin October 3 for the first

phase of construction on the McCook to Indianola highway construction project, according to the Nebraska

Department of Roads. This will consist of small amounts of grading, pavement patching on US-6 from McCook to

Indianola and culvert work, including replacing the bridge at River Canyon with a five barrel concrete box culvert.

The bridge at Coon Creek will be replaced with a new bridge during this phase, but will start approximately a month

after the other work.

Motorists can expect that during the first phase of construction this fall, two-way traffic will be maintained with a

12-foot width restriction. Areas of pavement patching will be controlled with a flagging and pilot car operation.

Motorists should expect up to a 15-minute delay during this time.

Later phases of construction will begin early in spring of 2017 and include grading, bridge repair at the bridge over

Red Willow Creek, completion of the box culvert at River Canyon and the bridge at Coon Creek. This will be

followed by milling the existing asphalt pavement and placing an asphaltic concrete overlay. Travel during this

phase traffic will be maintained with temporary traffic signals and contractor flagging.

The roadway surfacing portion of the project is anticipated to be completed by December 2017 with landscaping

work completed by early 2018. The Department of Roads will be providing the public with updates as the project


Paulsen, Inc., of Cozad, Nebraska, has the contract for the $10,432,926 project.

The Department of Roads’ project manager is Duane Collins of McCook. Motorists are asked to drive cautiously

through construction zones and be mindful of updated signs.
