Re: Omaha Local News Channels

Lincoln has its own network TV afillites. Lincoln residents don't/can't watch Omaha TV stations, and Omaha residents don't/can't watch Lincoln TV stations. If given the choice, they would. Some (not all) of the Omaha stations are included on a cable package here in Lincoln. If anything, many Lincol...

Re: If The North Freeway Was Extended to I-680...

That is good advice. Thanks. If Dodge was a full uninterrupted freeway from West Omaha to Downtown, then some certain buildings and landmarks would have to be demolished such as Memorial Park, Lewis and Clark Middle School and the Community Playhouse. And I don't think a lot of people would be too h...

Re: If The North Freeway Was Extended to I-680...

I just needed to get it out of my system. I'd been feeling this way about Omaha's freeways for years. As far back as 2007. 10 years. I've done all right for myself. Yeah, okay, I guess I am little obsessed with roads. I tend to get carried away from time to time. But there's nothing to be concerned ...

Re: If The North Freeway Was Extended to I-680...

Very Kansas City/Minneapolis-like. :yes: I just made one of my own. I've always thought they should've built L Street as a full freeway from 108th up to Elkhorn. I could see that whole area with I-80/I-680/L being referred to as "The 3-Freeway Meet". :;): http://img143.imagevenue.com/loc73...

Re: If The North Freeway Was Extended to I-680...

Personally, I think they should've built Frontage Roads on Dodge between 96th and 90th and have Dodge either be an overpass or underpass at 96th. That way, not only could 96th Street traffic go through that area uninterrupted, but Dodge could be a fully uninterrupted freeway all the way to 90th.

Re: If The North Freeway Was Extended to I-680...

Thanks. I guess I made the I-680 interchange a cloverleaf because it was easier to make than a bunch of flyover ramps. I didn't even put in collector/distributor lanes. I probably should have, but I didn't. I know some people don't think it's a good idea for a freeway to go through the area because ...

Okay, here's a much better rendition of my idea for a North Freeway extension up to I-680. You'll notice that it doesn't veer north a block west of 42nd Street now. And there's no exit at Fontenelle Blvd. There is at Curtis Avenue now. I had to put an exit in somewhere. But 30th Street is still alte...

Here's my idea for extending the North Freeway up to I-680. It's not the best design in the world, but I wanted to keep the Forest Lawn Funeral Home fully intact.

Re: If The North Freeway Was Extended to I-680...

I've been to large cities with multiple freeways–Minneapolis and Seattle. It's crazy. I've never been to Chicago, Dallas, Miami, LA or New York. So I don't know what their freeways are like. But if they're huge cities, probably constantly gridlocked with heavy traffic.

You know what we need here in Lincoln? Another Red Robin. Throughout the whole city, there's only 1 and it's on 27th and Pine Lake. There should be at least another location. And I know just the place: 66th and Q. Red Robin likes to put in restaurants near malls so that location would be ideal. :yes:
