There’s going to be a LOT of construction this summer; these very necessary repairs will affect trail, bridge, and other bikeway connections. We’ll continue with updates as we hear them.

We’ve worked hard to foster relationships with parks, planning, and engineering staff throughout the metro area to better understand how and these improvement will affect you on your bike. Here’s what we have so far: (we’ll continue to post updates as this changes)

Veteran’s Memorial Bridge – South Omaha to Council Bluffs (US 275)

Sidpath on the bridge will be closed for phase 1 of this project until this fall (estimated early September). Phase 1 preservation work will close the outside lanes of the US-275 South Omaha Veterans Bridge beginning on Monday, April 3 at 9:00 a.m. These lane closures are necessary to apply a protective coating to the steel truss and apply epoxy polymer overlay to the bridge deck surface. The bridge will be closed to all pedestrian traffic. Phase 2 work will close the inside lanes of the bridge. All work is anticipated to be completed this fall.

Keystone Trail Underpass at Maple (NE-64)

Nebraska Department of Roads release shows work will begin as soon as April 3rd, 2017. The Keystone Trail where it crosses under West Maple Road could see periodic closures starting on Tuesday, April 4th and going through the end of May.  The Nebraska Department of Roads will be undertaking additional work on the bridge.  Trail users can get off at West maple Road and cross the street at Keystone Drive at the traffic signal.

West Papio Trail at West Center Road (US 275/NE 92)

West Papio Trail at West Center Road will be closed starting on Monday, April 4th through the end of June.  The Omaha Public Works Department will be replacing a large storm drainage pipe that passes under the trail just north of West Center Road.  Trail will be closed at S. 156th Street on the south side of West Center Road and at Gold Circle on the north side of West Center Road.  A possible detour when heading north is to get off the trail at S. 156th Street, turn west onto  West Center Road, turn north onto S. 160th Street, turn east onto Dorcas Circle and take the 5 foot wide walk to the trail.  When heading south just reverse everything.

    The Capehart trail/sidewalk, heading west on the bridge, is closed for repairs. No idea when the completion date is and unfortunately the only way around is to ride on Capehart Rd .
