A Sarpy County road closure that took place since this summer has had a not so great impact on a local religious shrine. A construction bid got the go ahead and the days of detours may soon be numbered.
Sarpy County Commissioners approved a $438,000 bid to High Plains Enterprises for repairing Pflug Road between 228th & 230th Rd. Construction should begin soon and take 30 working days putting completion in the Spring.
Pflug Road, which is right outside the Holy Family Shrine in Sarpy County, has been closed since county workers realized it was eroding.
Since then visitors have to take a detour of about 3 miles around the shutdown.
"Most importantly we just want everyone to be safe but also just to have it done right and done once, so we're very happy with how they've handled it because I know a lot of engineering has to go into it and of course how it gets paid for," said Matt Sakowski, Caretaker of Holy Family Shrine.
In the last year the shrine's added new stations of the cross from a local church and made improvements on their outdoor stations.
An official completion date hasn't been announced for Pflug Road.
