Dodge Street pedestrian bridge will have new look for 50th anniversary

A renovation project continued Monday on the Dodge Street pedestrian overpass in midtown Omaha.

The $340,000 project, which began July 3, is expected to continue until mid-August — in time for the bridge’s 50th anniversary celebration and the start of the school year, city officials said.

The work by Ronco Construction and Linder Painting involves lead-paint remediation, repainting, deck resurfacing and new historical and landmark signage, officials said.

Some lane restrictions on Dodge Street will occur between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., and on weekends.
