History

One of the original state highways of 1921, Highway 13 ran from Hooper to South Sioux City and was a north-south route in eastern Nebraska. In 1925, Nebraska’s highway network was renumbered, then renumbered as Highways 5 and 9 (and later US 77 ). The number was then assigned to the route from Columbus to O’Neill. This section ran north-south and east-west. In 1933, the north-south section was renumbered as US 281 between Wolbach and O’Neill, and the east-west section from Columbus to Wolbach became part of Highway 22.

In the early 1940s, the number was assigned a third time, this time on a short east-west route from Laurel to Dixon in northeastern Nebraska. This numbering only existed for a few years and was renumbered to Highway 117 in the mid-1940s. About 1947 the number was assigned for the fourth and last time, on the current route from Hadar to Niobrara. Highway 13 then ran even further north from Center to Niobrara, which later became a county road. Highway 13 was largely a gravel road when granted in 1947. In the early 1950s, the first sections were paved, from US 81 to Craig and from US 20 to Creighton. In the late 1950s the remaining parts of Highway 13 were largely asphalted,

Traffic intensities

Every day, 4,800 vehicles travel on the southernmost section between US 81 and Pierce, dropping to 1,000 vehicles further to Plainview and 1,000 to 600 vehicles further to Center.

State Route 133, also known as Highway 133 is a state route in the U.S. state of Nebraska. The road forms a 19-mile (31 km) connection between Omaha and Blair in the eastern part of the state.

Travel directions

Highway 133 begins west of the large city of Omaha at an intersection with US 6. Highway 133 here is an urban arterial with 2×2 lanes and is also called 90th Street. The road opens up strip malls, businesses and residential areas. In northwest Omaha, Highway 133 turns off and becomes Blair Highway, a 2×2 divided highway. Here you leave the built-up area of ‚Äč‚ÄčOmaha, after which a connection to Interstate 680 follows. The road then heads through rural areas quite well west of the Missouri River, parallel to US 75. There are no other places between Omaha and Blair. Highway 133 ends on the south side of Blair on theUS 30.

History

Highway 133 was added to the network of state highways in Nebraska in or before 1947 and always ran between Omaha and Blair. The road was paved in the late 1950s. US 75 has historically been the primary north-south route in this region, but Omaha’s westward suburbanization made Highway 133 an increasingly important road. Westbound suburbanization reached Highway 133 in the 1970s, and it has been a 2×2 urban arterial in Omaha ever since.

The stretch from Omaha to Blair was later widened to a 2×2 divided highway with level intersections. In 2004, the first 7 kilometers from I-680 was widened to 2×2 lanes. In 2014, another 7 kilometers of Highway 133 northwards were widened to 2×2 lanes. On July 9, 2017, the widening of the last 10 kilometers to Blair was also completed. The doubling cost a total of $55 million.

Traffic intensities

25,000 vehicles drive daily in western Omaha, dropping to 15,000 vehicles until the junction with I-680, then briefly peaking at 26,000 vehicles north of I-680, before falling rapidly to 13,000 vehicles a little further outside Omaha and 7,500 to 9,000 vehicles on to Blair.
