In January of 2015, the Henderson City Council approved the Main Street Improvement Project. Work on this project will begin in Spring of 2015, weather permitting, and will continue through the Fall of 2015. The project will include:

  • Concrete street from Birch to Front Street on N Main,½ block west on Cedar Street and 1 block east on Cedar Street to 14th Street
  • Storm sewer from Cedar Street intersection south
  • Sidewalk on both sides of the Main Street (west side will be widened by approximately 4 feet)
  • Added diagonal parking on north side of Hashtag, north side of Grace Missions and south side of Downtown Park
  • Install new water main
  • Decorative light poles with LED light fixtures
  • Trash cans and benches
  • Decorative in-laid brick on the backside of the curbs and at the intersections of Cedar & Main and Front and Main
  • Some landscaped planting areas along Main Street with low profile, drought resistant plants and shrubs

The council will be meeting with the contractors and construction managers to decide the phases of construction and time frame for each phase. The contractors hired include:

    • Gana Trucking and Excavating from Lincoln
    • ME Collins from Wahoo (will install the new water main and do the concrete work)
    • Empire Electric from Lincoln (will install the new light poles and fixtures)
    • Faller Landscaping from York (will do the landscape work)
    • Ayars & Ayars (will be the construction managers on the project)

The amount of the project is estimated to be at $2.2 million. This will be paid for with municipal bonds. This is possible with the city being able to pay off two major street bonds in the last three years. Other small street repairs/replacements will still be budgeted for in the next several years.
