The project is located on 156th Street, from the intersection with Pacific Street on the south end to the interchange with West Dodge Road on the north end. This project includes
reconstruction of the Pacific Street intersection to accommodate dual left turn lane lanes. The project will not include any modifications or reconstruction of the interchange with West Dodge Road.
The reconstruction and widening of this segment of 156th Street is necessary to improve safety, accommodate the future traffic volumes, and reduce congestion along this busy two-lane roadway during the morning and evening peak. Impacts to traffic flow on 156th Street associated with Kiewit Middle School during morning drop off and afternoon pickup will also be evaluated. The proximity of three schools along the corridor and the residential character of the adjacent developments also emphasizes the need for improved pedestrian facilities.
