Renovations to North 5th Street in Beatrice have begun and are expected to be in full swing soon. 5th Street, from Lincoln to Court Street, is going to be converted into a two-way street during the construction phase, which is estimated to take about two months. Other projects planned as part of the renovations include angled parking, colored crosswalks, flower displays, and a statue display.
