Nebraska Highway 133

Hawkins Construction is completing a major roadway project for the Nebraska Department of Roads (NDOR) that will reduce highway congestion and increase traffic safety between Omaha and Blair. This improvement project consists of 900,000 cubic yards of earthwork, 310,000 square yards of pavement, and 15,000 linear feet of culvert and storm sewer. Along with two other improvement contracts completed by Hawkins, this project will complete the new four-lane divided highway between the two cities. Over six miles long, it will be completed in four phases to reduce impacts to local and through traffic.
