This program component focuses on growth of new transportation system assets to be owned, maintained, and operated by Lincoln Transportation. This funding supports the administration's vision of a Vibrant City Economy and Quality of Life. The activities include program management and project development of additional streets, bridges/structures, intersections, traffic signals, active transportation infrastructure, technology enhancements, and facilities in new growth areas. Projects include new streets and transportation right-of-way improvements, new bridges and support structures, roundabouts, signal system hardware, facilities/sites, and major upgrades to the fringe area street network.
In April 2019, the City of Lincoln voters approved a six-year, ¼ cent sales tax to be used for street improvements and construction. Of this new revenue to be collected starting October 1, 2019, a minimum of 25% must be apportioned to construction of new non-residential streets to promote private investment. In year one (FY 19-20), the proposed allocation represents 25% of the anticipated new revenue. In the out years, the allocation will be a minimum 25%, but the exact percentage may be subject to variation based on the project recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Transportation (ACT) and public input.
