The City of Lincoln is taking a new and innovative approach to finding the best solution
- A design competition among three traffic engineering firms is a leading edge approach that will find creative and intelligent ways to address current and future challenges with these intersections.
- Past design efforts did not achieve the full balance necessary to meet the complete needs for traffic improvement and community interests.
- New designs for these intersections will move the community beyond previous incremental improvements to a long-term solution.
Design process steps ensure the public is involved every step of the way
- Public input was front loaded before the actual design competition began.
- All key stakeholders in the project area had the opportunity for consultation leading to the draft designs.
- Project area stakeholders and the general public will review the design options and provide input before the City of Lincoln announces its final decision
