On July 18, Harrison Street will reopen from 150th to 154th streets. There will be intermittent lane closures through the area as crews complete Phase 2 of the Harrison Street Project.
Also on July 18, Harrison Street will close from 147th to 150th streets, as crews begin work on the final phase of the project. The intersection at 147th and Harrison will remain open; however, the intersection at 150th and Harrison will be closed. Work will include removing the old pavement, grading, storm sewer systems and paving. The closure is expected to last through September, depending on weather.
We are asking the driving public to use caution when driving in the area and to use the designated detour routes.

About the Harrison Street Project
Sarpy County is collaborating with the City of Omaha to transform a mile-long stretch of Harrison Street from 147th to 157th streets. The existing two-lane road is being upgraded to a four-lane arterial street with turn lanes and medians. The expansion will improve safety and travel times in the area.
The $10-million, 2-year project is expected to be completed in late 2019.
