COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska’s expressway system is still generating a lot of attention from members of the public who want to see road improvements.

The Norfolk Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1oeTkhl ) that the expressway system was one of the primary topics discussed Friday at a public hearing held by the Nebraska Department of Roads.

Business and community leaders in northeast Nebraska are calling for the expansion of U.S. Highway 275 between Norfolk and Fremont.

State Roads Director Kyle Schneweis says the expressway system needs to be finished. He says he’s optimistic that the work will happen with the expected passage of an infrastructure bank bill in the Legislature, known as the Transportation Innovation Act.
