Crown Point Improvement Project - Blair High Road to 72nd Street

About the Project

The existing 4-lane section of Crown Point Avenue between 72nd Street and Blair High Road has reached the end of its useful life. This project will construct new pavement and install ADA compliant ramps and sidewalks meeting current standards.

The City of Omaha has hired Olsson Associates to provide ​p​rofessional ​e​ngineering services for the reconstruction of Crown Point Avenue from 72nd Street to Blair High Road.  Olsson Associates will complete an analysis to determine the most appropriate cross section for the reconstructed road.
