Highway 79 Down to One Lane on Tuesday, July 10th

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.
