MILLARD, Neb. (KMTV) - People who drive through a busy street along the Sarpy-Douglas County line are invited to learn about a project that hopes to make their commute easier, especially during rush hour.


From 147th to 157th Streets on the Harrison corridor, the stretch features single lanes in some areas with traffic backing up when drivers ahead attempt to make a left turn.


At Niehardt Elementary, a project team will explain what drivers can expect during the construction timeline Monday at 6:30 p.m.


“We are going to take those two lanes and make it a four lane, [a] divided roadway, [with] two lanes in each direction and a median in the middle,” said Bill Herr, Sarpy County Project Manager, earlier this year.


According to the project, the work will be done in several phases with the first phase starting November.


The timeline shows the overall construction should be done late 2019.
