Highway 75 will close from Union to Nebraska City the week of March 31st.
It will reopen in September (maybe).
Starting the week of March 31st, if you plan to drive on Highway 75 between Union and Nebraska City, you will probably need to add at least a half hour to your trip.
A six-mile stretch of highway south of the Union corner will be shut down until September while crews rebuild the road.
Either plan to detour west on Hwy 34 to Hwy 50, then south to Hwy 2 (42.1 miles according to mapquest), or go across the Plattsmouth toll bridge to I-29 and down the interstate (47.9 miles according to mapquest). The only other way is to drive much slower on the rocky, dusty, gravel roads with more traffic and impatient drivers. Also farm traffic on the side roads will increase, adding to the delays. For the really good news - none of the county roads go straight through north to south.
