NDOT's 23rd Street reconstruction making progress; residents should expect traffic changes

RoadWork

The Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) has announced some changes people should expect beginning this week while driving along 23rd Street as it continues work on its reconstruction project.

NDOT announced temporary lane restrictions were expected to begin Monday, Feb. 12, 2024, at signalized intersections on US-30 from 26th Avenue to 18th Avenue to install temporary traffic signals. This work will occur during daytime hours and is anticipated to be completed by March 1. Traffic will be controlled by the existing traffic signals during this time.

In addition, traffic signal work will occur in the intersection of 3rd Avenue and US-30 on Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2024, and the intersection of 14th Avenue and US-30 on Feb. 15, 2024. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction for one day and will be controlled with a four-way stop configuration.

23rd2

As previously announced, NDOT will reconstruct approximately 2.69 miles of the existing pavement on 23rd Street starting just east of the north junction of U.S. Highway 81 (US-81) and 23rd Street, and extending just east of the East 11th Avenue intersection. The project will consist of removing and replacing pavement, four turn lanes (one right, three left) will be extended and five right turn lanes will be added. Curb inlets and storm sewer will be reconstructed and new pedestrian facilities will be constructed.  In addition, driveways will be consolidated where possible and roadway lighting and traffic signals will also be updated with this project.
