BLAIR – When will Blair’s South By-Pass be built? That question surfaces periodically. A public hearing and open house is Thursday, January 24th from six to eight p.m. at Blair City Hall, 218 South 16th Street. That proposed by-pass would connect U.S. Highway 30 to U.S. Highway 75 on the south side of Blair. An open house that evening will run from 6 to 6:30, a formal presentation from 6:30 to 6:45 and a public forum from 6:45 to 7:15. More details can be found online at blair Nebraska dot org.
