The Dodge County Board of Supervisors during its Wednesday morning meeting is prepared to receive a Joint Public Notice issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District and the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality regarding a proposed road project.
Information released by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers shows that the Nebraska Department of Transportation is proposing to expand approximately 9.6 miles of U.S. Highway 30 from a two-lane highway to a four-lane expressway.
The current proposed project, spanning from Rogers to North Bend, is the second phase of the entire US-30 project spanning from Schuyler to Fremont, which is proposed to be constructed in three separate phases. The project, released information says, would start along the existing US-30 alignment approximately 0.8 miles east of the Colfax County and Dodge County line.
The project would diverge from the existing US-30 alignment Dodge County Roads 3 and 4 and would curve to the northeast to provide a wider northern bypass around North Bend. It would then curve southeast between Dodge County Roads 9 and 10, and then from this point, the alignment would be located approximately 200 feet south of Dodge County Road S and would end near County Road 11, released information says.
The project would include the construction of 56 structures intended to convey flows through and under US-30 and manage drainage from the US-30 median, side roads, driveways and field entrances. Those interested can view a complete list of structures by viewing the Dodge County Board of Supervisors agenda online at http://www.dodgecounty.ne.gov/content/agenda.
