Two Lancaster County bridges will receive Nebraska Department of Transportation grants under the state's County Bridge Match Program.

The two — one on West Pioneers, just west of South 98th street, and another on Agnew Road between 98th and 112th streets — will be included in the county's construction plans for the upcoming summer, according to County Engineer Pam Dingman.

The bridge on West Pioneers was damaged in the 2015 flooding. “I can’t get that bridge opened soon enough," Dingman said.

The Agnew Road bridge is from the Works Progress Administration era, built in 1937 and damaged by flooding a year ago, Dingman said. It will be replaced by a box culvert, she said.
