Information Open House June 16 for Improvements on N-63 in Alvo Area
The Nebraska Department of Roads will hold an Information Open House June 16 regarding the proposed improvement of Nebraska Highway 63 (N-63), in Cass County, known as Alvo North. The open house will be held from 4:00-6:00 p.m. at the Alvo Fire Station – Fire Department and Rescue Squad Meeting Room, 135 Main Street, in Alvo.
The proposed project would begin just south of the northern corporate limits of the Village of Alvo, at mile marker (MM) 4.20, and extend north to MM 10.49, approximately 0.32 miles south of the Interstate 80 (I-80) and N-63 interchange. The planned construction would replace the existing asphalt pavement with doweled concrete pavement on a shifted alignment for approximately 6.29 miles, which would include 0.14 miles of shoulder work on N-63. The alignment of N-63 would be shifted to the west or east of the existing highway centerline at various locations along the project to minimize impacts to streams, wetlands, homes, and twocemeteries.
Construction could begin as early as spring of 2017 with completion by fall of 2018. The proposed project would be constructed in two phases and would require detouring N-63 traffic. A designated detour would be provided, utilizing U.S. Highway 34 (US-34), Nebraska Highway 50 (N-50), Nebraska Highway 66 (N-66), and I-80. Phase 1 would begin in spring of 2017 and take approximately one construction season. It is anticipated that work would begin on the south end, just north of Alvo, and extend to a point south of Church Road. The detour would be temporarily lifted during the winter of 2017 and put back in place in the spring of 2018 to begin work on Phase 2. Work would begin a point south of Church Road to the end of the project, just south of the I-80 Interchange, and would be complete by fall of 2018. During the 2018 construction season (Phase 2) the already completed south portion of the highway would be made available to localtraffic.
The proposed project would require the acquisition of additional property rights from adjacent landowners, which includes new right-of-way (ROW), permanent easements (PE), and temporary easements (TE), for construction throughout the project area. Access to adjacent properties would be maintained during construction, but may be limited at times due to phasing requirements.
Personnel from the Department of Roads will be available to answer questions, receive comments, and discuss any aspect of the proposed highway improvement project. Information regarding the project will be available after the meeting on the NDOR website at www.roads.nebraska.gov/projects/future-projects/by clicking on the
