(LINCOLN, NE) ––Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (NE-01) issued the following statement today after celebrating progress on the Lincoln South Beltway transportation project.
“It’s been a long and winding legislative road to get here today. It demonstrates the great things we can accomplish when we work together on the local, state, and federal levels, and then stick with it to completion,” Fortenberry said.
“I’ve seen this project from different angles, first as a Member of the Lincoln City Council when it was in its formative stages, and then as a Member of Congress when I helped provide federal support,” Fortenberry added.
“The Lincoln South Beltway Project is one of the largest and grandest transportation initiatives in our state’s history. It will ease congestion and promote safety,” Fortenberry said.
