Second Avenue Construction Suffers Setback

Dustin Odea

A major Kearney construction project has faced a setback as someone damaged some of the newly poured concrete this weekend.

Sunday, witnesses say Dustin Odea, 24, of Kearney was operating one of the construction machines on the new pavement that was poured on Second Avenue.

When police arrived Odea was found sleeping in one of the machines. Odea was then arrested on criminal mischief charges. The police report says alcohol was involved in the incident.

Blessing construction, the company doing the work on Second Avenue, estimates the damage to be anywhere from $2,000 to $15,000 depending on how they will have to repair it.
