Kearney residents will be happy to know that all lanes are now back in business along 2nd Avenue.
Reconstruction of the north and south bound lanes began last June.
Construction time lasted longer than expected due to colder conditions last spring, and although all lanes are fully functioning there are still minor details to be done.
"There are some bumps on the road on the new pavement that they're going to grind down. And that will happen in the very ear future. And then there are some permanent pavement markings that they're going to put on the new pavement and that will happen if not this week, then sometime next week," says Tom Farber with Nebraska Department of Roads.
All roads were in full function as of ten this morning. Drivers and pedestrians waves, whistled and honked with approval as traffic moved back to normal.
