Harrison Street to reopen Friday

Date: 
November 14, 2019

At 9:30 a.m. on Nov. 15, Sarpy County and the City of Omaha will reopen Harrison Street between 147th and 150th Street.

There will be lane restrictions through the area for approximately a week as crews complete the final stages of the work. Drivers should use caution when driving in the area.

This will mark the completion of the Harrison Street Project, which transformed a mile-long stretch of Harrison Street from 147th to 157th Street. The newly expanded road now has four lanes lanes as well as new traffic and pedestrian signals, turn lanes, medians, sidewalks and noise-reduction walls. The upgrades will improve safety and travel times in the area.

Preliminary work on the project began in late 2017 with tree removal and the construction of a noise-reduction wall. Phase 1 was completed in November 2018, and Harrison Street reopened for the winter. Phase 2 began in April 2019, followed by Phase 3 in July 2019.

Sarpy County and the City of Omaha will each pay 50% of the cost for the 2-year, $10-million project.
