ANGORA, Neb. — There’s no getting in the way of progress.

That’s become clear in the unincorporated panhandle town of Angora. Workers spent Monday leveling old buildings in the Morrill County community ahead of an expansion of the Heartland Expressway from two to four lanes.

The highway expansion is a 14-mile, $32 million project that is expected to be finished by fall of next year.
