Work to Begin on Hazardous Beatrice Street Intersection

BEATRICE – Grant Street will be closed for realignment work in Beatrice this week.

City Engineer James Burroughs says Grant Street between 4th and 5th will be closed, starting at mid-week.   R.L. Tiemann Construction will be straightening the street in that area for east-west traffic.  Work will focus on the area along the north side of Grant, just east of 4th Street.

That will address a safety concern where traffic meets at the top of a hill.  During the construction, both 4th and 5th Streets will remain open.
