Officials will host an informal open house to educate residents about plans for restarting the South Beltway Project.
The public meeting will be Tuesday, June 25th from 4 to 7 p.m. at Lincoln Southwest High School.
Officials will be there to answer questions and discuss topics such as the project design, timeline, the purpose and overview of the project.
The four–lane, nearly 9 mile bypass will take traffic around Lincoln from 134th street to US 77. It will be built about a half–mile south of Saltillo Road.
The project will help alleviate heavy truck and semi traffic on Nebraska Hwy 2 and is estimated to cost between $180-200 million.
