Roger A. Figard – Executive Director, RTSD – Railroad Transportation Safety District
Roger gave the group a presentation about the South Beltway. The beltway has been in the works for many years dating back to the 1960’s. Things were moving forward in the mid 90s up through the early 2000s but then put on hold in 2009. The Build Nebraska Act was passed in 2011 which got things moving on the beltway again. The current plan includes two lanes traveling in each direction with the option to add a third lane each way in the future. Roger shared mock ups of how the new beltway will intersect with Highway 77, 27th street, 70th street and 84th street. He also showed a mock up of how it would continue into the East Beltway when it is built. Estimated cost in 2020 is $300 million. Lincoln’s share of that will be $50 million. The RSTD has given the city $20 million and the City Federal funds banked $16 million which leaves $14 million for the City to come up with. At the moment the plan is start in 2020 with completion within 3 years. A question was asked about the 33rd and Adams train intersection. Roger gave the group some history on the project.
