Design has started on Lincoln’s NW 48th Street roadway improvement project. Currently a two-lane roadway, NW 48th Street will be designed as a four-lane divided road between West O Street and Highway 34. Design of the project began in the spring of 2013 and is expected to be substantially complete by the end of 2014. Construction for the segment between West O Street and West Adams Street is tentatively scheduled to take place in 2015, dependent upon the right-of-way acquisition process. The segment between West Adams Street and Highway 34 is not scheduled for construction at this time, but preliminary design plans will be completed.
Public meetings will be held throughout the project to ask the public to share thoughts and concerns so design engineers can incorporate public feedback into the design. Public comment is encouraged along the entire NW 48th Street corridor between West O Street and Highway 34. Learn more about public involvement and upcoming meetings here.
