Nebraska Board of Public Roads Classifications and Standards (NBCS)
The Nebraska Board of Public Roads Classifications and Standards (NBCS) oversees annual construction planning and fiscal reporting for state and local highways, roads and streets, as well as the application of minimum design, construction and maintenance standards for functional classifications (categories) of public roadways. The standards ensure that each segment can safely handle the traffic pattern and volume it is expected to carry, as part of a policy enacted in 1969 to provide for the efficient management, operation and control of an integrated system of state and local highways, roads, and streets.
Programs administered by the NBCS are:
- Annual Certification of Program Compliance (ACPC)
- State Aid Bridge Funds prioritization.
