Open House Postponed for N. 14th and Cornhusker Project

The open house scheduled for Thursday, September 22, on improvements to the intersection of N. 14th Street and eastbound Cornhusker Hwy. has been postponed. The meeting was to be 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., at Educare, 3435 N. 14th Street. The open house will be rescheduled following a review of documentation related to the federal aid process.

The intersection has been the site of 90 crashes over a five-year period, resulting in nearly $2 million in damages. An analysis by City, State and federal representatives and a private consultant resulted in the recommendation to build a roundabout at that intersection.

The project would include construction of a loop ramp connection from 14th Street to Cornhusker Hwy. and reconstruction of the eastbound lanes on Cornhusker Hwy. in that area. Additional work would include the widening of 14th Street, as well as construction of curb and gutter along the major roadways, concrete median surfacing, sidewalks and box culvert extensions. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in 2019.
