Fred Liss, Platte County ...
Fred Liss, Platte County highway superintendent, said the request stemmed from the Nebraska Department of Roads' and Union Pacific Railroad's requirement that an adjacent crossing be closed within one mile of the structure to qualify for funding.
The number of vehicles that use the East 29th Avenue crossing far exceeds the amount required to qualify for a viaduct with funding assistance from the state and railroad, Liss
said, and that is the reason the county is pursuing this project.
The county is approaching the city for "participation because East 14th Avenue is under the control of the city," he
said, and "the only options (for crossing closure) are East 14th Avenue and East 44th Avenue" south of Behlen Manufacturing Co.Liss
said from the board's perspective the logical choice is East 14th Avenue.
said there is nothing in the county's one- or six-year plan to accommodate for Eighth Street improvements.
Councilman Joe Held said he
understood it would be up to the county board if they wanted to close the crossing at East 44th Avenue, but if he
choice that would be his
said in order for the county to move forward promptly with the project "we need to come to (Nebraska Department of Roads) with an interlocal agreement if it is going to be east 14th Avenue" that will be closed.
