Street Closing Postponed

NORFOLK - The expected closing of the southbound lanes of 7th Street between Norfolk and Madison avenues has been postponed until Friday. The EPA had planned to close the street beginning Wednesday.  The street will be closed to allow for demolition, soil excavation and backfilling operations in the former Iowa-Nebraska Light and Power Gas Plant site in the southwest corner of the intersection of 7th Street and Norfolk Avenue. Intermittent closures of the northbound lane will also occur throughout the work, and an increase in truck traffic can be expected in the area. Work is expected to be completed by late April.
