The project included the conversion of existing pavement on Harney Street to allow for a two-way bikeway from Dewey Street to 10th Street. Also included in the project was restriping of parking, a buffered zone between traveling vehicles and the bikeway, and buffered loading and unloading zones at Metro designated bus stops.
Lamp Rynearson Construction Administration professionals worked closely with Bike Walk Nebraska, Metro Smart Cities, the City of Omaha, and corridor residents to listen, develop implementation plans, and be ready to pivot based on daily feedback.
Omaha’s first protected bikeway, Market-to-Midtown, between 10th Street and Turner Boulevard on Harney Street, is open for an 18-month pilot period. Bike Walk Nebraska and Metro Smart Cities will collect data and feedback to determine the viability of more and longer bikeways in Omaha.
