NEW REPORT EVALUATES CONDITION AND FUNDING NEEDS OF NEBRASKA ROADS & BRIDGES

A new report that evaluates the current condition, use and funding of Nebraska’s surface transportation system will be released at a news conference in Lincoln at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 25th.

 


 

The report, “Future Mobility in Nebraska: Meeting the State’s Need for Safe and Efficient Mobility,” analyzes road and bridge conditions, traffic congestion, economic development and job creation, highway safety, and transportation funding in Nebraska. TRIP’s report finds that the state faces a transportation funding shortfall of $1.1 billion over the next five years and that the average Omaha driver loses more than $1,100 annually because of deficient roads. The study identifies needed transportation projects throughout the state that can not move forward without additional funding. TRIP is a national nonprofit transportation research group based in Washington, DC.

TRIP’s Carolyn Bonifas will present the findings of the report at the news conference. Local officials will also be on hand to comment on the report.

TIME: 11:00 a.m.

DATE: Tuesday January 25th

PLACE: Roman Hruska Law Center
