Bye Bye, South Beltway

Despite their critical role in Lincoln’s future, don’t look for construction on the South or East Beltways to begin any time soon. The South Beltway, always planned to be the first to begin, isn’t even on the state’s six year plan.

Although the news is buried somewhat uneventfully in the Sunday Lincoln Journal Star, this is a big deal. The South and East Beltways are extremely important to Lincoln, both from a transportation and economic development standpoint. And yet few, if any, local leaders seem to be concerned. Why?

You’d think with our fading street infrastructure that we should plan to get more cars off internal roads and around the city. No one likes to see semitrailers roll down O street.
