Bonham Theatre Project to Reassess Renovation Project


COMING SOON--Plans are moving forward to bring Bonham Theatre back soon.
The Bonham Theatre Project committee has made the decision to examine the renovation project closely in order to implement cost-saving measures to reduce the cost of the overall project, which, by doing so, will help the project to begin.
Debby Ebke, member of the Bonham Theater Project committee and Brooke Schwab, president of the group, explained that the group vying to reopen the Bonham Theatre has been active in seeking bids for the project. They stated that in June the group began the bidding process, but found that those bids carried too high of a price tag for the project's current budget. 
Schwab explained that the project wasn't the only factor that effected the increased amount of the bids.

On The Road Again...

The demolition and re-build of the Highway 136 viaduct west of Fairbury is back on.
Fairbury City Administrator Collin Bielser told members of the local city council on Monday that his office was informed the project would proceed as originally planned.
"The Union Pacific Railroad has decided not to raise their track bed, which runs under the viaduct, so the project will go on as was the original intent," he said.
After spring floods washed out much of the trackage along the Little Blue River near Fairbury, the railroad had announced their intent to conduct a feasibility study to raise the track height. 
This would have changed the planned height requirement of a viaduct re-build and the Nebraska Department of Roads put the project on hold pending results of the UP's study.
Bielser said with the study in, the project would now proceed.
