(Sarpy County, NE) -- Drivers in the northwest portion of Sarpy County will need to plan making detours soon.
Sarpy County says starting Monday, August 16th, two roads will be close as the county works to transform the arterial road network in the area. Giles Road will close from 180th to 185th Streets. This is an extended closure, and work is expected to last through the fall of 2023. 180th Street from Giles to 180th Avenue is also closing, which the county says is a permanent closure.
The county says both closures are needed to reconstruct the intersection at 180th and Giles as well as to build a bridge over the BNSF railroad tracks. Drivers are asked to use Harrison Street, 168th Street, Highway 370 and 204th Street as detours.
The construction is part of the CONNECTSarpy – West Sarpy road program involves approximately 9 miles of arterial roadways. Full completion is projected in 2023. You can see a map of all the projects in this area here.
