LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) The Nebraska Department of Roads is accepting public input on its statewide transportation improvement plan.

The plan lists all highway and transit projects that will make use of federal money, as well as projects that are regionally significant. Nebraska's plan is updated every year on Oct. 1. The plan is sometimes changed to add or remove projects, to update with different funding sources, or to change a project's scope.

Federal law requires a public input period so that citizens can comment. The comment period opened on Wednesday and runs through 5 p.m. on Tuesday.

Public comments can be made on the department website at
www.roads.nebraska.gov/STIP/index-public-comment.html.
