Kearney Plans Paving
Road to Cost $40,000
Kearney, Neb., May . (Special.)
Kearney's problem of keeping the
road south to the Platte river bridge
in repair seems to have been defin
atcly solved. .After weeks of labor
a committee composed of the Rotary
and Kiwanis clubs and Chamber of
Commerce finally presented to the
city commissioners at a special meet
ing last night a petition, carrying
the signatures of a majority of
property owners along the route and
their request that it be created a pav
ing district. The district was im
mediately created and unless some
unforseen difficulties arise this
stretch of highway will be paved by
fall. , ' '
The road conveys the heaviest
travel in and out of Kearney, not
even excepting the Lincoln highway.
All trade coming into tne city from
the south uses this mile and a half
of highway on which' thousands of
dollars have already been spent. Sev
eral years ago the Chamber of Com
merce hired a federal road expert
to rebuild the highway at a cost of
over $4,000, but the new crown
crumbled under its heavy traffic,.
Every engineer who has been con
sulted had advised paving It is es
timated the cost of paving will be
about $40,000. . The city will lay
down the intersections. Thin is also
the first move toward carrying out
of an extensive boulevard system
which the combined civic organiza
tions are interested in putting
through' during course of the tjjxt
