168th Street Closing Harrison St to Giles Road

September 12, 2017


168th Street

Between Giles Road and Harrison Street


Reminder, on Wednesday, September 13th, 2017, Sarpy County Public Works along with Western Engineering Company will close 168th Street from Giles Road to Harrison Street thru traffic.  Bridge and roadway rehabilitation and maintence work will take place along this section of roadway.    The closure is anticipated to last approximately 8-10 weeks, weather dependent.   

Phase A will be a 30 Working Day Closure from Josephine Street south to Giles Road.  Phase B will be a 12 Working Day closure of 168th From Josephine Street north to Harrison Street.  168th Street from Giles Road to Harrison Street will be closed to thru traffic for the duration of the project.

The project is in response to an emergent condition of the bridge abutments over the BNSF Railroad that will require the closure of 168th Street.  While the roadway is closed, there will be a drainage project to address erosion to the South Papillion Creek, and a project to correct pavement failures in the asphalt paving from approximately Gertrude Street to Harrison Street. These pavement failures are best addressed at this time to minimize traffic disturbance.  Currently, roadway widening is being contemplated from HWY N370 to Harrison Street, and the goal of this project is to preserve this section of roadway up and until the widening is to commence at a future date.

Millard Park residents who live off of 168th and Josephine, please note you will detour north in Phase A and detour south in Phase B.  Cedar Ridge residents and RCI Roofing will detour to the south for the entirety of the project.  All other developments are to utilize other access points as best as possible.
