Beaver Creek bridge will likely be open in 4-6 weeks

YORK – The long-awaited reconstruction of the Beaver Creek Bridge in York is nearly complete.

After years of discussion, the project was bonded (with other street projects) when the interest rates were low.

The work started earlier this year and according to York Public Works Director James Paul, it is expected it will be complete and open to traffic in about 4-6 weeks.

He said a subcontractor is currently working on the approaches.

Paul said some work still remains on the pedestrian walk area and the decking poured “really nice,” while a 10-day cure actually extended to 30 days.

“It will hopefully last a very, very long time,” Paul said.

Regarding the street work that has been underway all year, he said there will be one to two weeks of back-filling to be done on Platte Avenue – the street has been completely poured.

He said the rest of the work on North Nebraska Avenue was to be poured during the next day.

James noted the process slowed during the weeks of really good rain.

“We will keep moving on as we can,” Paul added. “We will probably have some projects go into next spring as some utilities will need to be moved.”
