About the Project
The City of Omaha has completed a Traffic Study that evaluated the intersection of 205 th Street and Cumberland. The study was used to determine a preferred alternative for the reconstruction of the intersection. The Small Footprint Roundabout (RAB 1) alternative was selected as it should improve the operation of the intersection, especially for vehicles going to or from Cumberland Drive on 205th Street, reduce vehicle accidents and accident severity, improve pedestrian safety and provide better infrastructure for the growing commercial area. With the preferred alternative selected, design has begun on the new roundabout. The design will include intersection street and sidewalk improvements and storm sewer improvements along with any associated utility relocations.
