Projects in Study or Design
10th and Salt Creek Bridge Project
A recent structural evaluation has determined that the bridge would need to be replaced in order to meet the City of Lincoln's current and future vehicular and pedestrian needs. The proposed project would include removing the existing bridge and constructing a new bridge at the current location.
14th and Highway 6 Safety Improvement Project
This project will evaluate and provide safety improvements for the on-ramp to eastbound U.S. 6 (Cornhusker Highway) from N. 14th Street in the City of Lincoln. This may include reconstruction of the intersection at N. 14th Street with the eastbound U.S. Highway 6 off-ramp and portions of U.S. Highway 6.
14th Street - Warlick Blvd - Old Cheney Road Intersection Improvement Project
A first of its kind traffic design competition is being tried to improve the 14th Street/Warlick Blvd/Old Cheney Road Intersection. Safety and minimizing congestion at peak traffic flow times in the morning and afternoon are top priorities. Other key issues are improving connectivity for pedestrians and bicyclists, aesthetics, minimizing right-of-way impacts, all in a cost-effective solution.
NW 48th from West "O" to Highway 34
Currently a two-lane roadway, NW 48th Street will be designed as a four-lane divided road between West O Street and Highway 34.
49th and Rentworth Storm Drain Improvements
This project includes the installation of additional storm sewer pipe and inlets. These additions will improve drainage by allowing more water to be removed from the street, which will reduce ponding and street flooding.
56th and Colfax Storm Drain Project
This project will add a new 6-foot x 4-foot concrete box culvert north of the existing pipe along the David Murdock Trail, which will increase the overall storm drain capacity in the area. Also as part of this project, the David Murdock Trail will be upgraded from a crushed limestone trail to a 10' wide concrete trail.
56th from Old Cheney to Shadow Pines
The roadway will be designed as a 4-lane paved section with turn lanes and a raised median.
56th from Pine Lake to Yankee Hill
This project includes reconstruction of 56th Street from Thompson Creek Blvd. through Yankee Hill, and improvements at the intersection of Yankee Hill Road and 56th Street.
66th and Fremont Intersection Safety Project
This project will provide needed safety improvements at the intersection of 66th Street and Fremont Street. The goal of any proposed improvements will be to improve the safety of the intersection.
70th from Van Dorn to Eastborough - Pavement Repair Project
The City of Lincoln is proposing a concrete pavement repair and pedestrian signal replacement project along 70th Street between Van Dorn Street and Eastborough Lane. The project is currently in the design stage and is tentatively scheduled for construction in 2015.
West "A" from SW 40th to Coddington
Preliminary plans have been prepared for West "A" Street from just west of Coddington Avenue to just west of SW 40th Street. The plans include include curb and gutter, storm sewer, sidewalks, and right and left turn lanes where appropriate. Because funding has not been identified for right of way or construction, the project has been placed on-hold indefinitely.
Antelope Park Water Quality Projects
Water quality features included in the project are bioretention cells and swales, pervious pavement, amended soils, a "green roof" and a rainwater harvesting cistern. The project also includes educational components.
The East Beltway will constitute the east leg of a circumferential freeway system around Lincoln that will be made up of Interstate 80 to the north, the Homestead Expressway (Hwy 77) to the west, and the South Beltway to the south.
South Beltway (NDOR)
The South Beltway will be a new four-lane freeway across the southern suburban area of Lincoln and Lancaster County.
West Beltway (NDOR)
The project involves upgrading existing US-77 to freeway standards from Saltillo Road, north to I-80.
Coddington and West Van Dorn Safety Project
The goal of the project is to improve safety at this high-accident location.
Old Cheney Road and Salt Creek Near Wilderness Park - Drainage Study Review
In 2004, a drainage study of the stream along Old Cheney Road between Warlick Boulevard and Salt Creek was completed to review the flooding along Old Cheney Road, and several of the recommended improvements were completed in 2009. The City of Lincoln has hired Kirkham Michael to update the 2004 drainage study.
Pine Lake from 56th to Highway 2
The roadway will have 4 lanes with turn lanes, a raised median, sidewalks, curbs, and storm sewers.
Roper Park Stream Stability Project
The project involves bank stabilization to improve water quality and improve public health and safety. The design will consider numerous design options; including grade control structures, bridge abutment protection, channel reshaping, streambank toe stabilization, live planting bank stabilization, forestry management to reduce tree hazards, vegetative buffers along the creek, and bioretention areas.
Sheridan Penny Bridges
The bridges on Sheridan Boulevard just west of 33rd Street have significant deterioration and have reached a point of needing to be replaced. The side-by-side bridges were built in 1934 to carry Sheridan Boulevard traffic over the railroad. The design process is anticipated to take approximately one year and will include opportunities for public engagement in the design process. Construction will depend on the availability of funds for the project.
US Hwy. 6 / Sun Valley Boulevard Study
This project is studying how to provide an efficient roadway, improve traffic operations, resolve existing roadway deficiencies, and accommodate locally adopted plans for US 6 between West 'O' Street and Cornhusker Highway.
Trendwood Park Water Quality BMP
Design goals consist of storm water detention from the urban watershed, sediment trapping and removal, and water quality improvement in Deadmans Run. Water Quality BMPs include wet or dry ponds that utilize native wetland vegetation and promote infiltration.
