Road Closures

Sarpy County

Giles Road, 168th to 180th Streets

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. 
 
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. 
 
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.

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.
