Project Overview

120th Street between Stonegate Dr and Roanoke Blvd will be reconstructed to a four-lane roadway divided by a median. Improvements include new roadway with curb and gutter, enclosed storm sewer, sidewalks and trails, retaining walls, and a traffic signal.

The project will improve the consistency of 120th Street’s roadway section, which varies from four lanes, to two lanes, and back to four lanes within the corridor. The project will also provide continuity of pedestrian facilities, address roadway capacity, and enhance safety to accommodate projected future traffic demands. The project will support local and regional initiatives of the City of Omaha and the Metropolitan Area Planning Agency, known as MAPA.

Project Schedule

We have completed final design, the environmental assessment, acquisition of the right-of-way necessary to build the project, and utilities are in the process of being relocated as needed.

In October, the project was let and Tab Construction was selected to complete construction. Construction will begin in January 2021 and is anticipated to be complete in October 2022. Please note this schedule is tentative and subject to change based on project circumstances.

Project Schedule. 2020: letting and bidding, October; construction preparation, November and December. 2021: pre-construction public meeting, January; construction begins, January; utility relocation, November 2019-March 2020. 2022: construction complete, August; open to traffic, October.

Construction Phasing

Construction Phasing Overview

Although project plans identify 12 individual phases, this project will be constructed in four substantial phases as shown on this slide in a phasing overview. As mentioned on the previous slide, construction of 120th Street is expected to begin in late January 2021 and will be completed and open to traffic by October 22, 2022. In the following slides, phasing will be described in more detail.

Typical Roadway Cross Sections

The roadway cross section for this project is similar to other recent arterial projects such as 168th Street and 156th Street between West Dodge Road and West Maple Road.

Once constructed, there will be two lanes in either direction, separated by a median. From Stonegate Drive to just north of the West Maple Ditch Bridge, a 12-foot paved median will be constructed. The remainder of the project will have a 16-foot raised median widening to 28-feet for dual left turns. At key intersections, turn lanes will be added. Those intersections include:

  • Stonegate Dr
  • The entrance to Mulhall’s
  • Two entrances to Tranquility Park
  • The south entrance to Keystone Little League
  • Roanoke Boulevard
  • The dual left turn lanes at West Maple Road

Project Segments

Stonegate Drive to West Maple Road

In this and several of the following slides, we will walk through the proposed construction on 120th Street. The existing roadway will be removed and replaced as shown – with roadway lanes in yellow, bridges in pink, raised medians in blue, and sidewalks in orange. A blue “x” in a circle indicates an access restricted to right turns in and right turns out. A red “x” in a circle represents a permanently closed access location.

Proposed construction will begin approximately 200 feet north of Stonegate Dr. In this transition area, two through lanes in each direction will be built, along with a center two-way-left-turn-lane. Five-foot wide sidewalks will be built on each side of 120th Street. The bridge over the West Maple Creek and Ditch will be widened to accommodate two lanes in each direction with a center two-way-left-turn-lane. Two left turn lanes and one right turn lane will be provided on each leg of the intersection at West Maple Road and 120th Street.

Traffic on 120th Street will no longer be able to turn left directly onto Emmet Street; however, U-turns will be allowed at West Maple Road. Approximately 500-feet of West Maple Road will be removed and replaced to accommodate the lengthened turn lanes. New traffic signals and intersection lighting will be part of the improvements at the intersection.

New traffic signals and intersection lighting will be a part of the improvements at the intersection.
