84th Street & Indian Hills Drive and Dodge Street - West Dodge Road to 83rd Street (OPW 53403)

About the Project

The City of Omaha is making improvements to the intersection of 84th Street and Indian Hills Drive and along Dodge Street from West Dodge Road to 83rd Street. The 84th Street and Indian Hills Drive intersection will be realigned. The existing intersection has a split configuration along 84th Street, with traffic signals at the intersection of Indian Hills Drive to the west and Dodge Street to the east. This project will realign Indian Hills Drive and Dodge Street so that there will be only one traffic signal at 84th Street. Additionally, turn lanes and raised medians will be added to the intersection. Retaining walls will be constructed for the northeast and southwest quadrants of the intersection. The planned improvements are needed to replace deteriorating pavement and to decrease traffic congestion as the surrounding area continues to develop over the coming years.

Site preparation and retaining wall construction has begun, and this initial phase is expected to last through fall 2021. 84th Street and Indian Hills Drive roadway construction will commence in spring 2022 and is expected to last through spring 2023. Dodge Street from West Dodge Road to 83rd Street reconstruction will begin in summer 2022 and end in winter 2022. During construction, traffic will be maintained where practical with temporary lane closures. Access to adjacent properties and emergency services will be maintained throughout construction.

The reconstruction of Dodge Street from West Dodge Road to 83rd Street will be funded by the Street Preservation Bond.

Benefits of this project:

  • The intersection will be easier to navigate because there will only be one traffic signal.
  • The intersection will be safer because of planned enhancements such as a raised median on 84th Street and right turn lanes.
  • The intersection and roadway will be designed and built to meet current federal, state, and local design standards
  • Deteriorating pavement on Dodge Street will be reconstructed with new concrete paving.
