The Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) proposed to improve the traffic flow and safety southeast of the City of Fremont with a beltway between U.S. Highway 77 and U.S. Highway 275.
The Fremont Southeast Beltway improves continuity of U.S. Highway 77 and regional connectivity with U.S. Highway 275 and U.S. Highway 30.
It includes a new four-lane roadway beginning on U.S. Highway 77 just north of the Platte River Bridge and ends with a new interchange with U.S. Highway 275 near Old Highway 8, for a total length of approximately 3.8 miles.
The project will also include grade separations at the BNSF railroad and Union Pacific Railroad/Old Highway 275 locations. Lastly, dual-lane roundabouts are proposed at Broad Street, Downing Street, and single-lane tear drop roundabouts at ramp terminals.
