In the next 10 to 15 days, work will begin on grading and resurfacing Highway 14 between Petersburg and Elgin.
Rob Davis, engineer with the Nebraska Department of Roads, told the Elgin Review grading work on the highway will begin between July 8 and July 15.
This information was shared last week with Prairie Breeze Wind Energy farm workers at a meeting held at the Petersburg Fire Hall.
“Wind farm people were in attendance,” Davis said Friday, noting they will continue to coordinate road project efforts with Blattner Energey, general contractor for the wind energy farm.
“We’ll continue to be in contact with them.”
Work has begun in earnest on development of the Prairie Breeze Wind Farm being built south of Elgin.
When work begins, crews will begin the grading portion of the project on the north edge of Petersburg and work their way north. The Highway 14 project is expected to take two to three months to complete.
