Sixteen workers from the Omaha Public Works Department are about to get a nice payout.
The Nebraska Lottery says the street maintenance employees won a $1 million prize from the Feb. 8 Powerball, World-Herald staff writer Kevin Cole reports. Cole has the story here.
The group was oh-so-close to the ultimate prize. They had five numbers correct but not the Powerball, which would have kicked up their prize to $255 million.
Cole reports that the group bought its winning ticket at Kwik Shop at 7525 Cass St.
Split 16 ways, the prize would come out to $62,500 apiece.
