About NDOT

The Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) is responsible for the planning, development, design, construction, maintenance and administration of the state highway system. Preserving the billions of dollars Nebraskans have invested in their state highway system, making the highways safe and efficient, and accomplishing this in a timely and cost-effective manner are the goals of the State Department of Roads. The Department of Roads is responsible for overseeing and maintaining an infrastructure network that includes:

  • nearly 10,000 miles of highways,
  • more than 3,500 bridges,
  • 599 buildings in 119 locations,
  • an equipment fleet of over 2,100 cars, pickups, trucks and graders. 

Nebraska’s state highway system is paid for totally by highway user taxes and fees. The three major sources of revenue are the motor fuel tax, motor vehicle registrations and related fees, and the sales tax on motor vehicles, trailers and semi-trailers. It is important to remember that Nebraska’s major highway user revenue is shared between the state, counties and cities.
