Commuters beware, a major street makeover begins near one of Omaha’s busiest intersections.

The city will shut down 84th Street between Dodge and Pacific.

It's part of a project expected to take several months.

The facelift on 84th Street will include a new storm drainage system with a new sewer and water main.

City officials say the project will cost about 4 million dollars.    

The downside, some people won't be able to park in front of their houses during the construction.     

Recently, KMTV learned that some of St. Andrews Church's property will be lost.

But Father John Schaffer from the church said it’s worth the sacrifice to have a modernized street.

If you have any comments or questions, you’re asked to call the Traffic Engineering Division at (402) 444-5254.

The 84th Street reconstruction is expected to be completed by December.
