“So this additional infusion of capital money coming from the state really helps to bolster that back up and it helps us with projects like University Street, which are very important. It’s probably with busiest north-south street that we have inside the city,” Urich says.
Urich says most of the funding will go toward the University overlay project to Marlene Avenue. The city also plans to extend the work on University South Nebraska Road next year. The Tri-county area received about $2.5 million in the latest round of funding.
