A Nebraska landmark along Interstate 80 has hit a milestone.

Kearney Archway officials tell 3 News Now the Archway made a profit for the first time in 2017.

The Archway, which extends across I-80 near Kearney, features exhibits on the pioneer trails that crossed Nebraska.

It opened in 2000, but went into bankruptcy in 2013. Attendance has bounced back since then.

Archway officials say they are looking ahead to the landmark's 20th anniversary in 2020.
