The first of three streets improvement projects should begin next Wednesday.
Officials at Manatt’s say their plan is to close Lincoln Highway in west Nevada — from the bridge over the railroad to the driveway of the Story County Animal Shelter — by 7 a.m. on Wednesday, May 4. Local access for residents living in the Indian Ridge area and on the north side of the highway will still be provided.
Jeff Cirks, project manager from Manatt’s Inc., said workers plan to mill 2 inches of the existing road surface the first day. The project is being done to replace the asphalt surface with 3 inches of new asphalt.
Depending on weather, Cirks said, the project could take anywhere from 3 days to a week.
