Updated: Lane to be Closed at 56th Street and Second Avenue in Kearney


The city of Kearney Utilities Department and Midlands Contracting have announced a lane closure along 56th Street in Kearney that is taking place Tuesday, Feb. 26.

The installation of a new sanitary sewer main is causing the closure of the most southern east bound lane of 56th Street on the west side of Second Avenue. The closure will begin at 8 a.m. Tuesday and will be closed through the end of the day Friday.

The new sanitary sewer main, which will connect to the existing line located south of 56th Street, will provide sewer service to the Oak Park Center subdivision.

The city is urging drivers to use caution in the area and to watch for construction workers and machinery. Whenever possible, the city asks drivers to find another route to reach their destination.
