70th Street Between O Street And Havelock Avenue

I went through 70th Street yesterday and it's 3 lanes (1 north, 1 south and a center turn lane). But it looks pretty wide, like it used to be 4 undivided lanes (2 north, 2 south) between O and Havelock. Was it? Did it get a "road diet" like what's going on with 24th, 30th and Leavenworth u...

Anybody seen these signs around Lincoln? I have. On North 27th between Superior and I-80. And on O Street east of 56th. Anyone else?

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.

Re: Family Fare - No Frills - Bag N Save

The liquor section at the Albertsons (now Family Fare) on 108th and Q used to be a Louie's Liquor. Then sometime in the 90's, Albertsons bought it and it became the liquor section.

There Should Be A Red Robin By Gateway

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:

I haven't been to a game for the College World Series in a LONG time. I think the last time I went to one was back when Rosenblatt was still standing.

For years, there's been talk of possibly extending the North Freeway (US 75) all the way up to I-680. If that were to happen, which way would it go? And I mean without destroying any important buildings and landmarks.

I suppose a TV company that has the basic amenities (if that's the right word) of both cable and satellite is the answer. Cable–Getting out-of-market TV stations. Satellite-Built in DVR service. I guess Prism TV comes close. But they're not available in Lincoln. Maybe someday they will be. Who knows?
