The City of Omaha plans to spend $12.3 million to resurface roads across the city this year.
Omaha plans to complete 69 road resurfacing projects in 2019 that are sure to cause lane closures, detours and a longer commute or two.
The city has budgeted $12.3 million for the projects, which will affect neighborhoods, school zones and major intersections in every corner of Omaha.
The city released its full list of projects on Friday.
Among the areas that will see roadwork are a stretch of Farnam Street that runs past the Woodmen Tower and the Rose Theater; a mile of Q Street from 60th to 72nd Streets; and Pacific Street from 84th to 90th Streets, near Westside High School.
“The resurfacing program addresses roads that have not been repaired for decades,” Mayor Jean Stothert said in a statement. “We will continue to look for ways to increase funding for street repair to provide safe roads throughout the city.”

Resurfacing projects are selected based on traffic volume, history of maintenance, expected costs and current or upcoming utility work, according to the city. A street’s condition is determined using a national rating system.
Other projects include 24th Street from Ames Avenue to Fort Street; Mockingbird Drive from 90th to 96th Streets; and various sections of Main Street in Elkhorn.
