The City maintains thousands of traffic signs to help regulate and control traffic and parking.

The City maintains lane stripes and other road surface markings. Opposing lanes are separated by yellow lane markers while lanes moving in the same direction are separated by white broken lane markers. The lane markers are either painted or a special tape is adhered to the pavement. As lane markers fade or wear away due to traffic, they must be replaced. The City has a scheduled program of striping and pavement marking.
For questions about lane striping, call: 402-444-5160

Speed bumps (also called speed tables or speed humps) are installed where traffic is consistently faster than the posted speed limit. Citizens can request a speed bump and the City will investigate. If it is determined that excessive speeds exist and that a speed bump would control traffic speeds and site conditions allow the construction; the City will have the speed bump installed.
