The Railroad Transportation Safety District (RTSD) invites the public to an open house Thursday, June 27 on a proposed project in the area of  N 33rd St and Cornhusker Hwy. The meeting will be from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Center for People in Need, 3901 N 27th St.

The proposed project between N 27th and N 48th streets is currently in the environmental study phase. The goals of the project are to eliminate or reduce conflict points between trains and vehicles as well as pedestrians and bicyclists, to reduce delays for emergency responders when streets are blocked by trains, and to relieve traffic congestion.

Those attending the open house will be updated on the project and have the opportunity to provide input on the purpose and need for the project, the possible alternatives, potential impacts and other concerns.  Representatives from the RTSD, City of Lincoln and consultant team will be available to answer questions and receive feedback.  Comment forms will be available at the meeting and online at  Public comments will be accepted through July 12.
