Beginning the week of July 29, 2019, the Omaha Metropolitan Utilities District (MUD) will be replacing the water lines located on the north side of Dodge Street near 62nd Street.
The construction is expected to last through late August.
This project is in anticipation of the Omaha Rapid Bus Transit (ORBT) project. The new service from Metro will unite smart technology and streamlined travel for faster, more frequent public transportation. The project boasts revamps to current metro services such as enhanced stations, spacious vehicles, and travel upgrades that will connect more people.
Due to the utility work and ORBT construction, the westbound Metro bus stop at 62nd & Dodge is currently closed; riders wishing to utilize Route 2 heading west will need to board at the bus stop at 66th and Dodge Streets. The eastbound stop at 62nd and Dodge Streets will remain open until ORBT station construction starts at that site at a later date.
ORBT operations are expected to begin Spring 2020.
