For West Omaha drivers, the closure of 132nd and Giles has been a headache and now drivers will have to wait a bit longer. 

The project was scheduled to complete in around the end of October, but the State Department of Roads said it would not be completed until mid-November, according to Sarpy County engineer Denny Wilson. 

Wilson also said the county hears complaints "pretty much every day." 

This project, according to Public Works, is at the top of the list because of the access people are normally used to. 

The $1.9 million project has been in the works for about six years and 80 percent of the funding is coming from the federal government. 

When completed, the area will hold traffic volume much better and the two intersections at 132nd and Giles will be separated. 

"It will be signalized at each location," Wilson said. "Which will really improve traffic flow."
