The Build Nebraska Act (BNA) is a 20-year transportation funding program. It includes $1.2 billion in funding for capital improvement projects across the state. In 2013, 16 projects totaling $600 million were selected as part of the first 10 years of the Build Nebraska Act. Engineering performance was the starting point for making those selections.
After updating the project prioritization process in 2016 to include more public input and economic impacts, project selections for the next 10 years of the Build Nebraska Act were announced in September of 2016. NDOT selected $300 million in transportation projects that will be constructed and funded by the Build Nebraska Act (BNA) and Transportation Innovation Act (TIA). Along with those eight construction projects, NDOT will do design work on an additional 12 projects and planning on two others.

Selected Projects | September 2016
These project selections came after several months of work during which NDOT engaged more than 2,000 stakeholders to update and expand its project prioritization process. Project selections are based on engineering and economic factors, and are informed by stakeholder input.

Accelerated State Highway Capital Improvement Program
The Accelerated State Highway Capital Improvement Program will target investments that most impact our economy and allow us to grow Nebraska. The program creates a process that allows the NDOT to fast track expressways and other capital improvements projects that are vital to Nebraska. The Build Nebraska Act (BNA) was an important first-step in addressing the needs of Nebraska’s Expressway system and federally designated High Priority Corridors, construction of new highways and other high priority projects for the State Highway System. The Accelerated State Highway Capital Improvement Program advances similar initiatives and allows Nebraska to expand and accomplish more in capital improvements than we could with BNA alone.
