The Sarpy County of Board of Commissioners has selected HDR to perform 60% design on an 8-mile stretch of Platteview Road. The Board voted 5-0 to approve the resolution on Tuesday.
“Expanding Platteview Road to four lanes is a key priority for Sarpy County,” said Don Kelly, Chairman of the Sarpy County Board. “This agreement represents a significant step forward as the county realizes the vision of Platteview becoming an east-west expressway for the metropolitan area. We’re eager to complete design so that construction can begin.”
HDR was selected as design engineer after the county initiated a Request for Qualifications process. HDR’s work will cost $3 million. The project was included in the county’s current budget.
Under the agreement, the firm will complete 60% design to widen Platteview Road from Highway 75 west to 108th Street. The project involves realigning Platteview near the 42nd Street and 84th Street intersections, and conducting access control to ensure traffic flows smoothly on the expanded roadway.
Future phases will design and widen Platteview from two to four lanes all the way to Interstate 80, connecting eastern and western Sarpy County.
