Resurfacing Project Exposes Omaha's Past


We got a look at some old time Omaha history today which just happens to be part of a major resurfacing project in the heart of the city.

The Dodge Street resurfacing project from 52nd to 29th is underway.

At 49th Street, we get a glimpse of how Omahans used to get around.

The bricks are part of the old Lincoln Highway, the first nation wide road project in America.

Also uncovered, rails from the old trolley system.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln Highway.
