Highway 81

A plan to expand Highway 81 between Norfolk, Nebraska, and Yankton to four lanes could benefit from a funding proposal currently being considered by the Nebraska Legislature.

LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska Gov. Jim Pillen supports a legislative bill to accelerate highway projects, which could benefit a proposed U.S. Highway 81 expressway between Yankton and Norfolk, Nebraska.

District 40 State Sen. Barry DeKay of Niobrara sees the bill, introduced as LB 706, as providing an opportunity to create the divided four-lane highway in northeast Nebraska.
