Community Leaders Along Highway 275 Applaud Process of Highway Bonding Bill
NORFOLK - A bill to allow bond financing for state road projects is moving forward in the legislature, and is welcome news to a group of concerned communities along the Highway 275 corridor. Representatives from the communities of Norfolk, West Point, Beemer, Wayne, and Madison County have continued to meet and advocate to widen the remainder of the highway from Norfolk to the Omaha area to four-lanes.
Norfolk City Administrator Shane Weidner said that low interest rates would be favorable to move the project ahead.
Weidner: "If the bonding bill does go though and ultimately gets passed by the legislature and signed by the governor, we're hoping that Highway 275 can rise to a higher level of status and become a four-lane highway sooner than later."
Members of the Highway 275 group is going to appear before the Nebraska Highway Commission meeting in South Sioux City Friday.
