Schram Road

Papillion, NE


The overall goal of this project was to widen and pave Schram Road to help with increased traffic due to the development of the surrounding areas. To accomplish this, grading of the existing roadway, right-of-way, and tree clearing was necessary. In Phase 1 of the project (114th to 124th), 36 trees were designated for removal, along with eight acres of ground disturbance.

To meet the client’s schedule, E&A contacted the grading contractor at the end of the site visit with a verbal go-ahead, as no active nests were found on site. This gave the contractor the ability to start work while E&A completed the official report. A photo log and written report were provided to the client to keep on file.

*Note: An avian nest survey must be conducted or supervised by a qualified biologist. Avian nest surveys must be completed no more than 3 days before the removal of trees, shrubs, or vegetation that may contain an active nest. The MBTA is applicable year-round, but most migratory bird nesting in Nebraska takes place between April and September.
