A public is meeting is planned Tuesday ahead of a contamination clean-up under Grand Island's Eddy Street underpass.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said work at the Cleburn Street Well Superfund Site will continue soon.

"Beginning March 19, 2018, weather permitting, all four lanes of the Eddy Underpass will be closed through April 1, 2018. A detour will be via Sycamore Underpass, eight blocks to the east. One lane each direction will reopen on April 1, 2018. All four lanes will reopen December 2018, weather permitting. All land closures will be controlled by appropriate traffic control devices," said a statement from the EPA. "The purpose of the project is to clean up groundwater contaminated with hazardous substances related to past dry-cleaning operations at this site. The project will involve establishing thermal treatment wells in and near Eddy Street."

The EPA will hold a Public Availability Session:

  • Tuesday, March 13, 2018
  • 6 to 8 p.m.
  • Iglesia de Cristo El-Rapha, 803 W 4th Street, Grand Island
