Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) - The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has prepared a Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (SDEIS) to analyze the direct, indirect and cumulative effects of a proposed Nebraska state highway project, Nebraska Highway 12 Niobrara East and West Project (Project), by the NDOT. NDOT proposes to rehabilitate two segments of N-12 east and west of Niobrara, between Verdel and Spur 54-D in Knox County, Nebraska. The SDEIS describes the Project by the NDOT; a road rehabilitation of N-12 which incorporates an elevation increase to the 100-year flood elevation plus 3 feet. Alternatives to this proposal have also been reviewed, with all alternatives within the existing N-12 corridor, and are described in the SDEIS. The purpose of the Project is to improve the safety and reliability of the roadway and meet current NDOT design standards.
