Nebraska City Transportation

With the increasing costs of product distribution, Nebraska City’s central location near Interstates I-29 and I-80, Hwy 75 and Hwy 2 makes it an appealing location for commerce and industry.

Situated near two main interstate transportation routes, Nebraska City is ideally located. Interstate 29 (a North –South arterial route) is only a few miles to the east while Interstate 80 (East –West principal thoroughfare) is located 50 miles to the north near Omaha or 50 miles to the west in Lincoln. State Highway #2 is on the South side of Nebraska City connecting with both of these Interstates. Highway #2 is a four lane highway which is slated to gain Expressway designation in the near future with the Nebraska Department of Roads.

The community is served by both the Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroads. A private rail line (Arbor Rail Line) owned by the Omaha Public Power District is available for competitive access for development needs. Arbor Rail Line traverses Otoe County along the Highway #2 development corridor.


Nebraska City is bordered on the east by the Missouri River. A municipal terminal facility is currently leased to a private company utilizing barge loading and unloading in their operations. Barge traffic on the Missouri River has remained an integral part of Nebraska City’s commerce over the years and continues to play a role.

Nebraska City’s centralized location in the United States, as well as close proximity to major highways, Interstate systems, river barge traffic and available rail service, makes this location a great fit for manufacturing, warehousing, distribution and commercial development.
