Report: $10.2B needed for Nebraska roads over 20 years
Tuesday, 11 November 2014 08:48
The Nebraska Department of Roads has identified $10.2 billion in projects that it says are needed over the next 20 years.
The annual report was released on Monday at a legislative hearing.
Randy Peters, the department's director, says about half of Nebraska's construction money comes from the federal government. Some revenue also comes from the Build Nebraska Act, a state law that diverts sales tax revenue into roads projects.
The department estimates that $6.6 billion is needed for pavement restoration and $3.3 billion is needed for rural bridges and reshaping rural roads over two decades. Another $285.6 million will be needed for urban road- and bridgework, and $179.6 is required for railroad crossings.
Funding needs were identified by department staff, the State Highway Commission and the public.
