Record $600M in projects slated for construction in Nebraska

A record $600 million in road and bridge projects are slated for construction in Nebraska next year.

State officials including Gov. Pete Ricketts announced the total on Thursday as they released the Department of Transportation’s plans for projects over the next five years.

Nebraska DOT Director Kyle Schneweis says it’s an exciting time for Nebraska given the historic level of investment in road and bridges.

The DOT is responsible for nearly 10,000 miles of Nebraska roads and 3,500 bridges. In the coming fiscal year 2019, the agency will focus on maintaining existing infrastructure within the state’s transportation system.

The upcoming projects are scattered throughout the state.
