The new Ave A Corridor project is coming along very well. With construction already underway, we can now see how it's shaping up. Pictures below show the corridor from the western view and eastern view.

1st Avenue, a former railroad corridor, is a 66’ wide right-of-way stretching from I-29 in the west to Indian Creek in the east. It is one block south of West Broadway and represents an opportunity to link downtown Council Bluffs with downtown Omaha and all points in between.
Roughly 30% of Council Bluffs residents live within a half-mile of 1st Avenue. The corridor is lined with businesses along West Broadway, destinations such as Thomas Jefferson High School and Cochran Park, and numerous opportunities for mixed-use and multi-family residential redevelopment.
