168th Street Improvements – West Dodge to West Maple

About the Project

168th Street from West Dodge Road to West Maple Road is an important corridor serving the City of Omaha, Douglas County, and the increasingly rapid growth in the northwest areas of the metropolitan region. This section of 168th Street currently carries daily traffic volumes beyond the capacity of a typical three-lane roadway. Congestion is experienced at the intersection with Blondo Street during peak hours, with the volume of traffic making it difficult for vehicles to turn on and off 168th Street. In addition, increased development north of Maple Road has placed an emphasis on the need to improve safety and increase capacity along this corridor. Project benefits include improving safety, capacity and decreasing peak hour congestion.
