I will likely take Locust St. due to stations and eating places being on the way. When I plan on coming through there, I plan to fill up in Grand Island or one of the small towns beforehand and avoid the high pump prices charged right on I-80 as much as I can (I am sure that the higher prices are charged for convenience). This is why I normally do not fill in Kearney, Lexington, or some towns along I-80. I have noticed in Grand Island and Kearney quite a few times that gas stations by the interstate may be 15-20 cents more per gallon than stations further into town. Sometimes are worse than others. Sometimes, I am surprised but usually this is the case.

You're a smart traveler, Kearney is especially bad for the stations by the interstate to be much higher. Just drive a couple blocks and you can save money, but you always see cars at the higher priced stations filling up.

Default Cherry Avenue Interchange

The City of Kearney made a deal with the State of Nebraska to pay for the state's $3 million dollar portion of the Cherry Avenue 1-80 interchange before State Senator Fischer introduced her amendment to use $15 million in general funds to pay for federally earmarked highway projects. It was announced in the paper after the bill passed as that was when the funding sources were determined (Keno taxes).

Since that time, the state has agreed to split the bill with the City of Kearney. Each will pay $1.5 million for Phase I of the Cherry Avenue Project: the interchange and overpass and a new four lane highway north to 11th street.
