KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - The Archway monument spanning Interstate 80 at Kearney will be closed for a week this month while improvements to the attraction are completed.

Archway marketing coordinator Jace Robinson tells the Kearney Hub (https://bit.ly/1nMWHME ) that the attraction will be closed Feb. 20-26.

Robinson says visitor attendance is historically low during February, so officials don’t expect the closure to affect the attraction’s overall attendance numbers.

The main project will be centralizing the switches and breakers that start the exhibit’s audio and light show.

The Archway’s point-of-sale system will also be upgraded, and staff and volunteers will use the closure to clean the museum.

The Archway will resume normal operating hours on Feb. 27.
