Nebraska's Surface Transportation Program for 2024
Message from Director Vicki Kramer
The Nebraska Department of Transportation’s (NDOT) mission is to provide the best possible transportation system for the movement of people and goods. The Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 Nebraska Surface Transportation Program Book specifies how the Department plans to address statewide asset preservation, modernization, capacity, equity and safety improvements through construction.
In the 2023 Legislative Session, Governor Jim Pillen crafted and supported several legislative initiatives that will positively impact NDOT’s project delivery process and construction program. The authorization of a general fund transfer for $100 million to NDOT, will address increased state expenses to leverage the increased federal funding authorized through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Additionally, the extension of the Build Nebraska Act through 2042 and authorization for the Department to bond up to $450 million, allows NDOT to have more certainty around project delivery timelines.
We are evaluating how tools added through state and federal legislative changes in recent years can impact construction schedules for complex and high-cost projects such as interstate and expressway expansion, grade separation viaducts and large bridge replacements.
We remain committed to providing as much project delivery certainty as possible to communities and stakeholders.
Over the last four years, project delivery has been influenced by many things that are not directly controlled by the NDOT, such as regulatory changes, inflation, supply chain issues and natural hazard response. NDOT has remained resilient and is dedicated to providing a reliable transportation system that supports and encourages economic growth and heightened quality of life, providing a foundation for equity and thriving communities.
The Nebraska Surface Transportation Program Book contains the lists of state projects, separated by each NDOT geographical district and project type, planned for construction within the next six years. Projects listed under the Asset Preservation category will modernize and extend the life of existing roads and bridges while Capital Improvement projects increase capacity and improve mobility.
The book contains:
- Contact information for the NDOT District Engineers and Highway Commissioners
- District-specific project maps
- The FY 2024 Construction Program
- The Five-Year Planning Program
- Summary of Program changes since last published

*Project cost estimates contained in the book represent the planning estimates of the total costs of a project. These include: preliminary engineering, right-of-way, utilities, early planning estimates of construction, and other costs. They do not represent the final estimated construction cost of any project which goes to letting for bid by contractors.
