Update on construction at 132nd and Giles

OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - It's passed a couple of deadlines and people in Sarpy County are wondering about 132nd and Giles

It was supposed to be done by Halloween, then by Thanksgiving but now it is April and the intersection of 132nd and Giles is still not done, and people have called to complain. 

"We have gotten complaints and yest I completely understand. That project project blew by a deadline we gave," Sarpy County communications manager Megan Stubenhofer said. "We really appreciate everyone's patience as we work to improve this intersection." 

When it's done, the wider lanes will not only help traffic flow, it is also expected to be safer, especially for semis and trucks heading through the area. 

Giles Road west of 132nd Street is the final portion of the intersection and workers have been out all through the week doing some work with dirt to prepare for the final lane paving along with guard rail work and lane striping. 

"We've had a little trouble this week, obviously the weather has not been conducive," Stubenhofer said. 

The cold weather makes it hard for Sarpy County to establish a date for when the project will be done, but they believe there is about a month's worth of work left and that work is weather dependent. 

Currently, the project is three weeks behind.
