North Platte Sees Record Construction Year in 2013


NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) -- It's been a record building year in North Platte, with construction valued at more than $95 million in 2013.

The $95.1 million in construction tops the previous record of $72.8 million in construction in 2002.

The construction costs come from estimates by the city of North Platte's Department of Development.

A giant portion of the construction spending came from the $80 million addition to the Great Plains Regional Medical Center.

Other big projects include work at First National Bank and Mid-Plains Community College.
