Blackstone Neighborhood Omaha NE - Farnam Street Changes

Farnam Street in the Blackstone District Neighborhood of Midtown Omaha NE has been converted from a one-way street westbound, to a two-way traffic street.  This change was effective last Sunday evening, November 9th, from 36th Street to 42nd Street.

 

According to City Councilman Chris Jerram and real estate developer Jay Lund, this new traffic change will help restore a business friendly environment to the area which had been in decline for half a century.  The Blackstone neighborhood in Omaha has undergone significant redevelopment, especially at the intersection of 40th and Dodge.  Buildings have been restored, new buildings and businesses are now open, crosswalks and new stoplights are now functioning along Farnam Street.

You should check out the fantastic new changes to the neighborhood!  Stop by for coffee at Archetype Coffee, have a meal at Mula, or grab a drink at the new location of the longtime neighborhood bar Sullivan's, plus many more local businesses and shops.  The Blackstone neighborhood is located to the west of Midtown Crossing, and just to the east of the University of Nebraska Medical Center.  The new two-way street will make it much easier for you to drive east to reach the business district, and increases the bikeability and walkability of the midtown area.
