48th Street Improvements Project (OPW 52875)

About the Project

The City of Omaha is preparing for the reconstruction of 48th Street from Harrison to Q Street and Q Street from 48th Street to 44th Street. This project is to replace aging and deteriorating pavement,
address access management needs, enhance pedestrian facilities, and improve the transportation facility operations, safety and mobility of the traveling public on both the Q Street and 48th Street
corridors. The proposed project would reconstruct 48th Street to a hybrid 2-lane and 3-lane urban section. A 3-lane urban section is planned on Q Street. Proposed improvements also include curb and
gutter, storm sewer, retaining walls, sidewalks, and roundabouts.
