Eighth St. Construction Ends Today

Oct 23, 2020
Riverfront Revitalisation

After being closed for more than a year and a half, Eighth Street between Douglas and Farnam in Omaha will reopen to southbound traffic tomorrow (Fri). Eighth Street closed in March of 2019 as the RiverFront project construction began. Since then, land in the area has been brought up to grade and the street repaved.

A new science center will be going up along Omaha's riverfront. Developers say it will be a learning and entertainment attraction with a focus on science, technology, engineering, and math-inspired activities. The 101-million dollar project will be privately funded.
