The Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) recently announced the awarding to Koss Construction of Topeka, Kansas, for the construction of three segments of U.S. Highway 275.

The three segments include: Scribner North for $37,772,493, West Point South for $18,546,966, and West Point North and South for $26,894,819. The project will expand U.S. 275 from a two-lane highway to a four-lane divided expressway from Scribner, Nebraska to West Point, Nebraska.

“Awarding the contract for these segments of U.S. 275 has been decades in the making,” NDOT Director John Selmer said in a statement. “This accomplishment has been the result of determination, collaboration, and innovative approaches to provide much needed mobility and safety improvement to the region.”

NDOT and its partners in Fremont, West Point, Scriber, and Norfolk worked together to get this long-desired project underway. Construction is scheduled to begin this summer and is expected to open to traffic in the spring of 2024. The Scribner Bypass is on schedule to be let this fall.

Omaha metro area prepares for a busy construction season

NDOT said drivers should be prepared for traffic delays and other impacts to their commute as construction season ramps up in the Omaha metro area.

Major highway construction project areas include I-80 at Eastbound from 50th Street to I-480, at the 84th Street Interchange, and at Nebraska Highway 66 (N-66) to N-50. Other projects include I-480 from 20th Street to the Missouri River; U.S. 75 and I-480 Interchange at the Burt and Cuming Street Bridges; and I-680 from I-80 to Fort Street.
