156th Street - Pepperwood Drive to Corby Street

About the Project

The 156th Street Improvements includes upgrading the existing two-lane rural street to a four-lane urban street with dedicated turn lane, curbs and gutters. The general project limits are 1.2 miles of 156th Street from Pepperwood Drive to just south of Corby Street and 0.5 miles of Blondo Street from 162nd Street to 600 feet east of 156th Street as shown in the project map below. The project also includes improvements to the intersection of 156th and Blondo Streets and other intersections along the project. Other project elements are as follows:

  • Constructing bike paths, sidewalks and curb ramps
  • Installing a new traffic signal, street lighting and communications infrastructure
  • Building retaining walls and noise walls
  • Reconstructing adjacent roads to match with the improvements
  • Installing drainage and storm sewer facilities
  • Adjusting private utility lines

The project will improve local and regional mobility by enhancing the vehicular transportation system and improving connectivity, reducing driver delays, and improving pedestrian accessibility along the 156th and Blondo Streets corridors. The project also supports local and regional initiatives of the City of Omaha and the Metropolitan Area Planning Agency (MAPA), as described in multiple long-range planning documents, including the MAPA 2040 LRTP and the City of Omaha Capital Improvement Program (CIP).
