The History of the Lincoln South Beltway

The initial concept of a beltway around the City of Lincoln arose in the 1960’s. Due to inadequate funding, the concept slowly evolved over the past six decades. With the passing of the Build Nebraska Act, Nebraska Department of Transportation was finally able to commit the resources required to advance towards construction. The Lincoln South Beltway project was recently selected in a competitive grant process to receive federal funds through the TIGER Grant, which helped significantly reduce the construction schedule for the project.
