Eight Nebraska Transportation Projects Recognized in National Transportation Benefits Campaign

LINCOLN, NE — The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) is beginning a new public outreach campaign entitled “The Benefits of Transportation: The Solutions State DOTs Bring to People & Their Communities.”

Designed to increase public awareness about the benefits transportation investment provides, this new national campaign uses an interactive map to link website visitors to transportation projects across the country — eight projects in Nebraska — that are reducing travel times, improving safety, protecting the environment, and boosting the economy.

The Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) has been recognized for the following projects:

  • County Bridge Match Program
  • Historic Nebraska Flooding; NDOT’s Response
  • Lincoln South Beltway Project
  • Reconstruction of 23rd Street in Columbus
  • Accelerated Bridge Construction Between Belden and Laurel
  • Revitalizing a Downtown with NDOT’s In Valentine Project
  • Winter Billboards Highlight Local Snowplow Drivers
  • Innovation Brings Truck Parking to Big Springs

“The professionals working at state departments of transportation know these benefits first-hand, because they’re responsible for planning, designing, and building the transportation projects that keep America moving by car, truck, rail, bus, and bicycle,” said Jim Tymon, AASHTO Executive Director. “This year will be pivotal for transportation because Congress must pass a new surface transportation bill before the current law expires at the end of September."

“We are extremely fortunate in Nebraska to have a history of support for transportation in our state,” said NDOT Director Kyle Schneweis. “From communities to Congress, Nebraska residents recognize and value the importance and vitality of a safe and thriving transportation system. I’m thankful for leaders all across the state who continue to make transportation a priority. As we continue to cultivate partnerships that Grow Nebraska, we especially pride ourselves on the ways we’ve been able to improve the quality of life and assist in economic development in communities throughout Nebraska.”
