30 in Grand Island
Proposed Construction : The project will reconstruct US-30 from a four lane urban curbed section to a five lane urban curbed section. New storm sewers and new sidewalks will be constructed with this project. This project will increase traffic capacity and decrease the number of accidents by moving turning traffic into the common left turn lane.
As a part of this project, a second signal will be added at Lincoln Street.
Street lighting will be included as a part of this project.
Right of Way: Most properties along this project will have impacts from this widening. A 2’-4’ strip of property along US-30 will need to be acquired in order to construct this project. The Conoco Restaurant is to be acquired as a part of this project.
Phasing: US-30 will be constructed one half at a time, beginning with the South half. Access to businesses will remain open at all times. Eastbound traffic will remain on US-30 at all times during construction. Westbound traffic will be detoured to Third Street for the length of the project.
Schedule: The tentative schedule is for the project to be let in the Summer of 2007, with construction beginning in the Spring of 2008 and ending in late Fall of 2008. It should take one construction season to complete the majority of construction activities. There maybe some carryover of minor activities that will be completed in the Spring of 2009.
Estimated Cost: The cost of construction and ROW is $5 million.
