Weather permitting, a chip seal project will begin on Wednesday, July 24 on Highway 14, according to the Nebraska Department of Transportation.
State road workers will be applying a chip seal from mile marker 136 to mile marker 145, from Petersburg to Elgin. Chip seal is an application of an asphalt binder to a roadway surface, followed by aggregate.
The work is anticipated to take two days. One-lane traffic will occur with the use of a pilot car and flaggers. Motorists should expect to see reduced speed, delays and are reminded to drive cautiously through highway work zones.
