MORSE BLUFFS – Commuters from the Morse Bluffs area who use highway 79 should plan a little extra time in their trip on Tuesday, July 10th.
Weather permitting, a chip seal project will begin July 10 on N-79, according to the Nebraska Department of Transportation. Chip seal is an application of an asphalt binder to a roadway surface followed by an aggregate.
State maintenance forces will be performing a chip seal from Reference Post 39 to Reference Post 42, north of Morse Bluffs. The work is anticipated to take one day. One-lane traffic will occur with the use of a pilot car and flaggers. Motorists should expect to see delays and are reminded to drive cautiously through highway work zones.
