Two Omaha newspapers closely followed Interstate and freeway developments—the Omaha World-Herald and the South Omaha Sun. Omaha's major daily newspaper, the Omaha World-Herald, provided long-term coverage to Interstate planning and construction throughout the 1960s. The World-Herald supported the construction of the Interstate highways and tended to be critical of the Taxpayers Plan in its editorials. The South Omaha Sun, a smaller weekly paper that catered toward neighborhood news on Omaha's south side, reported in detail the mass-meetings held at Immaculate Conception church during the spring of 1959 and provided coverage into 1960.
The articles below are from the Omaha World-Herald and the South Omaha Sun. The articles are sorted in chronological order. Collections of articles based on particular topics are accessible below.
