According to the Nebraska Department of Roads, you may now drive from Union to
Nebraska City on US-75 over two newly surfaced concrete lanes, new concrete shoulders, improved drainage, four newly repaired bridges, and new guardrail.
Cedar Valley Paving of Waterloo, Iowa, performed the work for the $11.1 million highway improvement project that began in March of this year.  
Lane markings were installed this week and opened to traffic early this morning.  Grading, bridge sealing and permanent seeding work will continue after the roadway is open to traffic.  
The use of lane closures and pilot vehicles will be needed to complete these items.  Delays at work zone flagging stations may occur.
Completion of all work items will occur later this fall.
The newly paved US-75 opens just in time for the popular Applejack Festival,
September 19-21, in historic Nebraska City, to kick off the apple harvest season.
