Homestead Lane and 207th Street is now reopen to traffic. The $11.3 million project started in August 2018.

Work began thanks to the increased traffic for the new Kubota distribution warehouses and the Hostess warehouse, which is currently under construction.

The four-lane divided concrete street features landscaping, a 10-foot wide trail on the north side of the street and new LED street lighting. The new lights are less costly to operate.

Crews also upgraded the bridge over Big Bull Creek. The small two-lane bridge over the creek was replaced with a new 65-foot span. Engineers designed the new bridge to hold the weight of the truck traffic that will be traveling the road.

The project is substantially complete. However, the intersection of 207th and Waverly will be closed temporarily next week for construction at the intersection.
