Two years after spending $203,000 to run fiber-optic cables to the new Sheriff's Office, Sarpy County now must spend $135,000 more to move the lines to make way for a Papillion street widening.

The underground cables provide phone, email and Internet access to the Sheriff's Office and public works facility on Platteview Road. They were installed along 84th Street when the new $7.8 million County Law Enforcement Center was being built in 2010 and 2011.
