Public meeting planned for Harrison Street construction project

March 09, 2018

The public is invited to attend a construction kick-off meeting and open house for the Harrison Street Project from 6-7:30 p.m. on March 22.

The meeting will be at Andersen Middle School, 15404 Adams St. The main parking lot is on the north side of the school. Additional parking may be available on the south side of the school and on Adams Street.

The meeting will include a brief presentation at 6:15 p.m. to share project information and a projected timeline. An open house will follow until 7:30 p.m.

Sarpy County partnered with the City of Omaha and Douglas County to transform a mile-long stretch of Harrison Street from 147th to 157th Street. The current two-lane road will be upgraded to a four-lane arterial street with turn lanes and medians. The project will improve safety and travel times in the area.

Preliminary work on the project began in November, with tree removal and the addition of a noise-reduction wall.

The project is estimated to be completed in late 2019.
