The Corps has prepared a third party Draft EIS to analyze the direct, indirect, and cumulative effects of the US-275 West Point to Scribner Expressway Project proposed by the applicant, Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT). NDOT proposes to expand US-275 from a two-lane highway to a four-lane expressway along an approximately 20-mile segment from northwest of West Point to southeast of Scribner in Cuming and Dodge Counties, Nebraska. NDOT’s need for the Project is to provide a more reliable transportation corridor on US-275 between West Point and Scribner in accordance with legislative mandates by maintaining and improving regional connectivity, safely accommodating current and projected traffic, and addressing flooding concerns in the Nebraska Expressway System.
