BURCHARD - A recreational access road that's long been in poor condition with numerous potholes, will be seeing improvement.   Weather permitting, work will begin Monday, October 17 on County Road 615 Avenue in Pawnee County....an access to Burchard Lake State Recreation Area. 

Work also will be done inside the recreational area, according to the Nebraska Department of Transportation.
