Sarpy County is preparing to undertake a two-phase construction and paving project on Giles Road from 168th Street to 192nd Street.
Phase 1 will begin on Nov. 4, when Giles Road will close between 168th Avenue and 180th Streets. Crews will replace sanitary and storm sewer infrastructure and box culverts, then pave the roadway. The paving will extend from 168th Avenue to approximately 174th Street, which is west of the entrance to Scary Acres.
Following the completion of Phase 1, construction will shift west and Giles Road will close between 180th and 192nd Streets for the second part of the project. Crews will pave this section of Giles from 192nd to 188th Street.
A portion of Giles Road will remain gravel at this time, as the county will reroute that section of Giles as part of the realignment of 180th Street in the future.
The closures will last through May 2020, depending on weather.
We are asking the traveling public to be aware of the closures and to use the marked detour.
PHASE 1 DETOUR ROUTE: For eastbound Giles Road, take 180th Street south to Cornhusker Road, then east on Cornhusker to 168th Street, then north on 168th Street. For westbound Giles Road, take 168th Street south to Cornhusker, then west on Cornhusker to 180th Street, then north on 180th Street.
