Welcome! Moving the Metro is a construction update provided annually by NDOT for the Omaha metropolitan area. With several significant construction projects planned for and underway during the 2023 construction season, we want you to know what to expect so you can get to your destination safely.


2023 Omaha Metro Area Construction Projects

The interactive map includes construction project information for NDOT, City of Omaha, Douglas County, Sarpy County and Iowa’s Pottawattamie County projects, as well as other 2023 construction project information, including anticipated traffic impacts, anticipated project start and completion timeframes, and project contacts.


We’re building and maintaining an efficient, long-lasting transportation system within the Omaha metro area. We recognize the frustration that construction can cause.
