Open House Set on 33rd and Cornhusker Study

The public is invited to an open house Thursday, November 5 on a study of transportation in the area of 33rd Street and Cornhusker Highway. The Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study is a first step toward finding ways to improve mobility and safety and reduce delays along the BNSF corridor between N. 27th and N. 48th streets. This corridor is used by trains, vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists. The meeting is from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Nebraska Educational Telecommunications building, 1800 N. 33rd Street and is sponsored by the Railroad Transportation Safety District (RTSD).

The open house will not include a formal presentation, but those attending will be able to learn more about the study process, share thoughts and concerns, and discuss the project with RTSD representatives and the design consultants. Future project phases include design, detailed environmental analysis and construction.

The meeting room is accessible for persons with disabilities, and a Spanish interpreter will be available. Parking is available on the south side of the building.
