OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Metropolitan Area Planning Agency (MAPA) of Omaha-Council Bluffs wants your input on roadway projects that would impact portions Leavenworth, 24th and 25th Streets as well as 24th Avenue.

Leavenworth would change from four lanes to two lanes and accommodate bikes from 7-13th Streets. The cost of this portion would be just over $1 million and would also include grading, drainage, traffic signal modifications and curb extensions.

The second portion of project would cover a corridor study on portions of 24th Avenue, 24th Street and 25th Street between Mason and Cass Streets. The study would focus on improvements for biking, walking and other transit methods. The projected cost would be just over $125,000.
