LINCOLN, Neb. (AP)- The Nebraska Department of Transportation has announced scheduled repairs for bridges washed out or damaged in historic mid-March floods.

The department says a contract for repairs to a bridge on Highway 11 south of Butte has been awarded, with a completion date of Dec. 31 set. The department says engineers had to alter the design to replace the bridge deck and repair steel girders. A temporary bridge is expected to open in August.

Work has already begun on the Highway 57 bridge south of Stanton and is expected to be completed in the fall. And a contract to repair the Highway 94 bridge east of Pender has been awarded; the work is expected to be completed in November.
