These photos, taken in late April of 2012, show the progress being made on a new pedestrian overpass and a separate vehicle overpass. These both will take people and vehicles over busy highway 30 and also over the triple main line tracks of the Union Pacific Railroad.
The Sheriff and his deputies may be sitting alongside highway 30 with a radar gun, so make sure to watch for the speed limit signs as you go through town.
