Stretch of 120th Street receives funding to widen road to four lanes

By  | 

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT)-- Road construction on a segment of 120th Street received funding to continue the roadway's expansion to four-lanes, thanks to a BUILD grant awarded Wednesday by the Department of Transportation.

"120th Street is an important connection in northwest Omaha. The project responds to increasing traffic volume, especially with recent improvements to Tranquility Park that attract soccer teams from across the midwest and their fans.

"We are grateful to Senator Fischer and Congressman Bacon for supporting our BUILD Grant application and to the Department of Transportation for the award that allows us to accelerate the construction timeline."
