I bump this thread by mentionning these 2 videos of the Lincoln South beltway posted around mid-May.

They've started construction on widening a stretch of US75 from Plattsmouth to Murray.

Article from June: https://fremonttribune.com/community/cass-news/news/widening-project-ready-to-start-completion-set-for-mid-2023/article_d37bb7e5-a748-5987-9854-7bf87addae24.html

Slowly making their way down to Nebraska City.

Just curious to know exactly when Nebraska Highway 85 was decommissioned. I drove back to my parents in the Omaha area, did some random driving (there was lots of tree damage in a recent storm), and saw all the NE 85 signs were removed. NE 85 was 84th Street in Omaha, Ralston, and LaVista and Washington Street in Papillion.

I had to do the portion of I-80 from York to North Platte with nothing but a classical music station to listen to. (I wasn't driving.) And I think Prairie Home Companion came on somewhere in there. Now that's torture.  :no:

Yes, there's almost no radio stations in the rural parts of I-80 in Nebraska. My brother complained the only one was some AM station where they were yacking away about High School Football with the same enthusiasm usually reserved for the NFL. At least on I-70 there is a powerful AM signal coming out of Garden City with Limbaugh etc on that you can hear from Saline all the way into Colorado.
According to Wikipedia, there are some radio stations in Grand Island, NE & North Platte, NE.

75 from Plattsmouth to NebCity is long overdue; glad it is finally being done.

Must have been pretty recent. All the city & county maps on NDOT's website still show it, as does GMSV from 2019.

I have never heard of it being flooded.  In places where it closely parallels I-29, such as at Nebraska City, it is on top of bluffs while I-29 is in low-lying ground that floods easily.

Yeah. It hasn't flooded in either of the 2011 or 2019 floods. The problem is every one uses it when I-29 floods. I found an alternate route (NE-50) to Omaha that ended up working out better for my final destination point.

75 from Plattsmouth to NebCity is long overdue; glad it is finally being done.

The part from Murray to Nebraska City isn't funded for construction. I thought it might be funded for design but I'm not sure.

One thing I remember when I still lived in Nebraska and would look stuff up is that the US 75/NE 1 intersection is the boundary between the Omaha and Lincoln districts. Therefore, it wouldn't be funded south of there.

I looked and it is funded for design in the next 10 years of the Build Nebraska Act.
