LINCOLN — The Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) Director Kyle Schneweis recently released the fiscal year 2018 Surface Transportation Program. This publication details how the department plans to use the taxpayer’s highway user dollars to provide the best state highway system possible for all Nebraskans and the traveling public. This program does not include any aeronautics-related construction.
