Safety is a high priority for Lincoln drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
The City of Lincoln is committed to providing safe, convenient, durable, and efficient transportation infrastructure.
As the intersection is now, there are 80 vehicle conflict points, versus the 36 conflict points in the proposed design.
The area can be challenging for bicyclists and pedestrians to navigate efficiently, especially during peak hours.
Traffic congestion, especially during peak hours, is a community issue that needs a long-term solution.
14th & Old Cheney is one of the busiest intersections in Lincoln, handling nearly 38,000 cars per day. By 2045, that number will increase to 59,000 cars per day.
A new intersection design will move the community beyond previous incremental improvements to a long-term solution.
Community input played a significant role in the concepts proposed for this intersection.
