This public meeting was held to solicit public feedback and comments on the project’s purpose and need, and the RTSD’s adjusted preliminary preferred alternative. The project team was seeking feedback related to whether the preliminary preferred alternative would meet a project purpose of improving connectivity.
This public meeting was held to solicit public feedback and comments on the project’s purpose and need, and the RTSD’s adjusted preliminary preferred alternative. The project was seeking feedback related to whether the preliminary preferred alternative would meet a project purpose of improving connectivity and reducing delay for pedestrians, bicyclists and bus transit within the project area.
Use the information below to understand the reasoning for the design features of the Railroad Transportation Safety District’s (RTSD) preliminary preferred alternative.
Focusing on reducing delay and improving multimodal connectivity for pedestrians and bicyclists within the study area, the need for the project includes:
Existing Conditions: Learn more about the existing conditions for pedestrians and bicyclists in the project area.
Previous Preliminary Preferred Alternative: View the previous preliminary preferred alternative presented in June 2020.
Current RTSD Preliminary Preferred Alternative: View RTSD’s current preliminary preferred alternative to address the project purpose and need for pedestrians and bicyclists in the project area. The differences between the alternative presented in June 2020 and the current preliminary preferred alternative are highlighted. The first map shows the overall project area, the second map shows the west project area near N. 33rd Street and Cornhusker Highway. The third map shows the east project area near N. 44th Street and Cornhusker Highway.
What the Area Would Look Like in the Future: 3-D images of the project area have been created to help better understand the proposed improvements. These are for visualization purposes only.
Process and Schedule: The project is currently in the Environmental Analysis and Preliminary Engineering phase. A public hearing on the draft Environmental Assessment is anticipated in Fall 2022.
The comment period for this public meeting is closed. If you have questions or comments about the project, please contact the project team.
This public meeting was held to provide new and updated information about the NEPA process for the proposed transportation project, the project’s purpose and need, the project’s remaining transportation alternatives, opportunities for public input.
Open House Meeting Stations
Thank you for your interest in the proposed N. 33rd Street and Cornhusker Highway transportation project!
Use this information sheet as your guide to the public information meeting materials. Links to all of the open house meeting stations are available below.
NEPA is the National Environmental Policy Act. It requires federal agencies to assess the environmental effects of their proposed actions prior to making decisions.
During the planning phase in 2018, the project advisory committee and the community developed a list of community goals for the subarea plan. Several goals are related to the transportation project and were used to create additional transportation alternative concepts.
Using the Tier 0 / Tier 1 screening criteria, the following alternatives have been considered and dismissed. Below each of the alternatives is the numbered criteria for which it was dismissed.
Currently, there are eight remaining alternatives under examination.
The numbered circles on the alternatives represent an arbitrary numbering system used to identify potentially impacted properties which are described in list form.
Each of the remaining alternatives will be evaluated based on the Tier 2 screening criteria, public and agency input, and environmental impacts, and will be weighed against the transportation needs of the project to select a preferred alternative.

Public comments were collected through July 12, 2019.
The fifth public open house meeting was the final meeting for the Planning Phase. The purpose of the open house was to share and gather public feedback on the draft Subarea Plan and Corridor Enhancement Plan and associated recommendations for future land use, development and redevelopment, transportation and infrastructure, connectivity and mobility, floodplain and aesthetics and quality of life. The proposed plans are intended to provide a long-term vision for north Lincoln ranging from:
The fourth public open house meeting was held in conjunction with a multi-day design charrette with the project advisory committee. The purpose of the open house was to gather input from the public on design concept sketches and several topics related to the subarea such as future land use, development and redevelopment, transportation and infrastructure, connectivity and mobility, floodplain and aesthetics and quality of life. Several displays of existing conditions analyses along with multiple concept sketches developed during the charrette were presented.
The third public open house meeting was held to update attendees on the project since the completion of the PEL study and share information about the Planning Phase happening during 2018. The meeting focused on introducing the Subarea Plan and Corridor Enhancement Plan, and how the public could be involved in helping to shape the long-term vision for this area of Northeast Lincoln.
The second public meeting was held to share information about the transportation improvements that have been identified and evaluated, as well as information on the Deadman's Run Flood Risk Management Feasibility Study and gather public input.
The first public meeting was held to share information about the Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study and gather public input.
Three newsletters were developed and produced throughout the Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study phase of the project.
