S. 56th Street

Lincoln, NE

E&A completed a roadway design to convert S. 56th Street from a 2-lane roadway to a 4-lane arterial street for the City of Lincoln. This project involved re-evaluating an Environmental Assessment for NDOT and US Army Corps of Engineers review and approval.


This new, four-lane, concrete-paved arterial roadway has a new storm sewer system, improved water line, erosion control measures, sidewalks, drainage structure, concrete trail, retaining walls, lighting, noise wall, signing, and striping. It was a federal aid project, so it was designed to NDOT standards and overseen by NDOT and FHWA. E&A led a team comprised of sub-consultants handling environmental documentation, geotechnical studies, structural designs, and street lighting. We coordinated and assisted with the permitting process and public information meetings.
