Construction for the segment of NW 48th Street between W. Vine Street and W. Adams Street is scheduled to begin in April. Some private utility construction has already started, and site prep and initial grading will likely take place in March.
Currently a two-lane roadway, NW 48th Street will be constructed as a four-lane divided road between W. Holdrege Street and Highway 34. South of W. Holdrege Street, the road has been designed as a six-lane road to match NDOR’s interchange project, though only five lanes are being built now. The segment between W. Adams Street and Highway 34 is not scheduled for construction at this time, but preliminary design plans have been completed.
Public meetings are being held throughout the project to ask the public to share thoughts and concerns so design engineers can incorporate public feedback into the design. Public comment is encouraged along the entire NW 48th Street corridor between West O Street and Highway 34. Learn more about public involvement
and upcoming meetings -- including one on March 19, 2015 -- here.
