ARLINGTON — Today, the Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) announced US‑30 between Fremont and Arlington is scheduled to reopen on Saturday, June 15.

The span of US-30 between Fremont and Arlington has been closed to through traffic since March 15, 2019 due to damages sustained during the March 2019 flooding.

Flood waters washed out portions of the roadway and caused significant damage to the pavement. Oldcastle Materials Midwest Co. DBA Omni Engineering repaired and replaced pavement and reconstructed shoulders along 3 miles of roadway. Work was completed in just over 90 days for a total cost of $1.7 Million.

Oldcastle Materials Midwest Co. DBA Omni Engineering is the contractor on this project.

  •  Date of Change Order – 4-5-2019
  •  Total Days Closed – 92 Days
  •  Cost of Repairs – $1.7 million
  •  Nature of Repairs – Roadway and shoulder reconstruction due to pavement and embankment damage.

With the opening of Highway 30, US-275 (West Center Road) is one of the last remaining closed roads in District 2 as a result of the March flooding. This roadway and bridge suffered significant damage and require a complete reconstruction of the bridge structure and pavement. The NDOT anticipates West Center to open in mid-July.

Due to ongoing flooding and high water levels, connecting roads to neighboring states like US-34 to Iowa will remain closed. The Department also continues to repair damages from recent flooding as well as working towards repairing damage sustained due to increased traffic on detour routes.
