The Omaha District's key military focus is the design, construction and revitalization of facilities essential to our nation's defense and the overseas contingency operations.

Over the past 75 years, Omaha District crews have been responsible for the design, construction, and operations and maintenance of facilities that prepare and care for the military personnel that keep our country safe. From Strategic Air Command Headquarters in Bellevue, Neb., to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., the District has proven itself capable of delivering the expertise necessary to produce the complex facilities that make protecting our nation possible.

Across the country and throughout the decades, other U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Districts and branches of the military have repeatedly turned to the Omaha District for its unparalleled expertise in building structures, roads, runways and railroads that meet the needs of the changing dynamics of protecting our people and our property at home and abroad.
