The paving of 42nd Street officially has begun as a 350 yard first phase of construction between the Highway 71 intersection and the driveway to the Elite Health Center was completed Wednesday.
Scottsbluff Public Works Director Mark Bohl says the project will be done in seven distinct phases as it move east toward Fifth Avenue and completion this fall.
Bohl told us on KNEB’s News Extra 42nd Street is “a tired street” that will welcome new sewer and storm water infrastructure to provide much better drainage. And the project will include curbs and five foot sidewalks on both sides that will tie in to the planned expanded Monument Valley Pathway.
The second phase from the Elite Health Center driveway area to Avenue G will begin Monday. T
