Omaha, NE

This project involves preparation of an Environmental Assessment for the widening of 168th Street, a two lane asphalt roadway, to a four lane concrete urban arterial for the City of Omaha. The improvements include widening two segments of 168th Street between Q Street and West Center, and from West Center to Pacific Street, adding turn lanes and sidewalks where appropriate, widening or replacing an existing bridge with continued accommodations for a pedestrian sidewalk/trail at Lake Zorinsky, a new culvert at an unnamed tributary of the west branch of the Papillion Creek, and storm sewers. Important components of this EA include wetlands, Section 4(f), public involvement, pedestrian accommodations, traffic operations, trails, residential impacts, and coordination with the Corps of Engineers, Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, US Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Nebraska State Historic Preservation Office.
