The City of Omaha (City) Public Works Department is completing a corridor study to improve the segment of Farnam Street from Dodge Street to 46th Street. The purpose of this study is to analyze the feasibility of permanently converting Farnam Street to a continuous, two-way street through the study area. The study evaluates other appropriate improvements that could be implemented to accommodate future growth with a focus on vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian travel.
The segment of Farnam Street that passes through the Dundee neighborhood is currently a two-lane undivided roadway from 46th Street to Happy Hollow Boulevard. This segment also switches between one-way and two-way operation throughout the day using variable lane assignment via signalization. During morning commuter period (7:00 AM to 9:00 AM), Farnam Street operates as a two-lane one-way roadway in the eastbound direction. During the afternoon commuter period (4:00 PM to 6:00 PM), Farnam Street operates as a two-lane one-way roadway in the westbound direction. This one-way operation only occurs during the commuter peak hours on weekdays; Farnam Street otherwise operates as two-way the rest of the day and all day during the weekends.
