The public is invited to an open house Tuesday March 15 on a study of transportation in the area of 33rd Street and Cornhusker Highway. The Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study is a first step toward finding ways to improve mobility and safety and reduce delays along the BNSF railroad corridor between N. 27th and N. 48th streets. This corridor is used by trains, vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists. The meeting is from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Nebraska Educational Telecommunications building, 1800 N. 33rd Street and is sponsored by the Railroad Transportation Safety District (RTSD).
The open house will not include a formal presentation, but those attending will be able to learn more about the study process and provide feedback. The study team has identified and evaluated transportation improvements in the area based on input received at the first public meeting in November 2015. Four alternatives will be presented at the open house, and representatives from the RTSD, the City and the design consultants will be available to answer questions.
Representatives from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will also be at the meeting to answer questions about the Deadmans Run Flood Risk Management Feasibility Study. A portion of Deadmans Run flows through the study area and will be affected by the proposed improvements.
The meeting room is accessible for those with disabilities, and a Spanish interpreter will be available. Parking is available on the south side of the building.
