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.
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 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.
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.
Pine Lake from 56th to Highway 2
The roadway will have 4 lanes with turn lanes, a raised median, sidewalks, curbs, and storm sewers.
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.
