Project Information

The City of Omaha has received funding to conduct a road diet project on 30th Street from Cuming Street to Ames Avenue with the goal of improving vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian safety while improving mobility and access along the 30th Street corridor.

The proposed improvements would re-purpose the roadway from a five-lane cross section to a three-lane cross section with room for on-street parking and bicycle lanes. This design reduces speeds and the distance that left-turning vehicles must cross when turning, creating a safer driving situation. Designating space for bicyclists and reducing the distance for pedestrians when crossing, combined with a larger buffer between the roadway and sidewalks, increases mobility and safety for those walking and biking.
