COLUMBUS- The City of Columbus is asking for the public to provide input on draft alternatives for the Columbus South Mobility Study, which is evaluating the potential need for improvements to safely and efficiently move east-west vehicle and pedestrian traffic in the southern portion of the City.
The online meeting will be available at columbusne.us/mobilitystudy/alternatives from June 15 through June 29. The public will have an opportunity to review and comment on draft alternatives, including a no-build alternative, mini-roundabouts, widening key intersections, or two, one-way streets referred to as a one-way couplet. The City is also evaluating other pedestrian and bicycle improvements. The study area primarily focuses on 8th Street from Highway 30/81 on the west to just past 3rd Avenue on the east. The northern limits of the study area extend to the Union Pacific Railroad tracks and the southern limits of the study area extend to the Loup River Levee.
A final study report identifying a recommended alternative is anticipated to be complete in August.
