Road construction is set to resume on 168th Street from Giles Road to Highway 370 starting Thursday, June 4.
Initial construction will allow 168th Street to remain open to traffic while crews mill and overlay from just north of Cheyenne Street to just north of Meridian Road.
Then, starting Monday, June 8, the first phase of paving will begin and 168th Street will close to traffic. The work will happen in three phases:
- Phase 1 will fully close 168th from Giles to Cornhusker.
- Phase 2 will close the intersection of 168th and Cornhusker.
- Phase 3 will close 168th Street from Cornhusker to Highway 370.
The closures will only be during the work day and will be taken down each evening. Altogether, the work is expected to last about a week.
Drivers should expect delays and use caution in the area. Nearby residents can access their properties by using entrances off Giles, Cornhusker or Highway 370. Highway 50/144th Street can also be used as a detour.
During phase 2, local access will be permitted up to the intersection of 168th and Cornhusker.
