Info Current as of December 6, 2010
This project will include the construction of a new four-lane bridge on US-77 over the Platte River, south of Fremont. Also included will be the construction of approximately 4,500+/- feet of new roadway.
The Draft Environmental Assessment is posted above. A Draft "Bridge Replacement Options" report is also available by contacting Micky Jacobs (above).
Right of Way
To accommodate construction, an additional 0.50 acres of right-of-way, including a mobile home, has been acquired from one parcel. Relocation of the mobile home, located northeast of the proposed bridge, has been completed. Also, 0.98 acres of temporary constructions easements has been acquired.
Right of way - 0.5 acre acquisition and one relocation, 0.98 acre of temporary easement; local community and traffic disruption during construction; Monnich Park reconstruction of the driveway; Utilities will require adjustments; 0.27 acres of wetlands will be impacted; Soil will be disturbed by construction activities; threatened and endangered species may be affected.
US-77 traffic will be maintained on the existing bridge or the new bridge during construction. During daylight hours, each direction of traffic may be restricted to one-lane traffic with appropriate traffic control. Temporary surfacing may be built to accommodate US-77 traffic at certain times and to maintain access at all times during construction.
The project was let to contract on Oct. 21, 2010, with construction to begin later in 2010. It is expected to take approximately two years to complete the construction of the new bridge and approach roadways, and another two years to complete the removal of the existing bridge and approach roadways.
