Public Input Sought on Plans for N. 33rd and Cornhusker Area

Open house set for January 17

The City and the Railroad Transportation Safety District (RTSD) invite the public to several events in January and February to learn about and comment on the final draft plans for the North 33rd Street and Cornhusker Highway area. A related amendment to the Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization's (MPO) Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is also part of the discussion.

The plans provide a longer-term vision for Northeast Lincoln, from Salt Creek Roadway to Superior Street; between North 27th and North 48th streets; and along the Cornhusker Highway corridor between North 11th and North 56th streets. The proposed plans will help guide City review of private projects and zoning, public transit and parks services, and the engineering and design of new transportation projects over the next 10 to 20 years. The plans outline recommendations regarding land use, development and redevelopment; transportation and utility infrastructure; mobility; economic sustainability; and aesthetics.

The Subarea and Corridor Enhancement plans were developed as part of the North 33rd and Cornhusker Highway Transportation Project between North 27th and North 48th streets. The project is scheduled to begin in 2026, and the plan is designed to coordinate future land use needs with transportation and utility investments. The public will have more opportunities to learn about the project and provide input on details as design progresses. Continued environmental investigations and preliminary design are scheduled to begin in 2019.
