BEATRICE – In one week, motorists in Richardson County will be working their way around a road project south of Shubert.

A construction project is scheduled to begin October 17th on Nebraska Highway 67.   The Nebraska D-O-T says a Wahoo, Nebraska company has a contract for culvert construction and minor grading.  

The road will be closed in the construction area and traffic will be detoured to the west, using parts of U.S. Highways 75 and 73 and state Highway 62. 

Department officials say the work will be completed in November.
