Christopher Burbach of the Omaha World Herald wrote up an article on the coordination between the CSO (Clean Solutions for Omaha), which separates storm sewer from sanitation sewer, and construction of the South Omaha Trail.

With drier weather, Vrana is moving dirt, pouring cement, building retention walls and water detention chambers. Here are some pictures showing the progress:

Below shows the old curb and storm sewer juxtaposed with the new curb, i.e. the street diet plus a couple feet of land to fit in the 8′ wide sidepath trail. The rest of South Omaha Trail is 10′ wide.
