SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) Gov. Dave Heineman said construction will begin sooner than originally planned for two major roads projects in western Nebraska.

Heineman said May 3 that the Department of Roads will award a contract for the Kimball Bypass by Oct. 15 and for the portion of the Heartland Expressway south of the Morrill-Box Butte county lines by August 2010.

The Kimball Bypass project could begin in November. It will relocate northbound State Highway 71, beginning at the East Kimball Interchange at I-80, and end about 3 mi. north of Kimball.

Preliminary work on the nearly 15-mi. (24 km) stretch of the expressway could begin in the fall of 2010.
