Open House Set for North 33rd and Cornhusker Project

The City and the Railroad Transportation Safety District (RTSD) invite the public to an open house Wednesday, May 9 on the plans for the North 33rd Street and Cornhusker Highway Transportation Project and Subarea Plan. The meeting is from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Center for People in Need, 3901 N. 27th Street. (Park on the south side and use the entrance under the white awning). No formal presentations are planned.

The project will be designed to improve safety and mobility, and reduce delays along the BNSF corridor between N. 27th and N. 48th streets. The corridor is used by trains, vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists. Representatives from the RTSD, City and design consultants will be available to discuss all elements of the plan, including future land use, development, aesthetics, transportation, connectivity, floodplain, quality of life and trail system needs.

Future project phases include detailed environmental analysis, design and right-of-way acquisition. The construction date has not been set and will be dependent upon successful completion of other project phases.

The meeting room is accessible for persons with disabilities, and a Spanish interpreter will be available.
