Nebraska Highway 31 is a highway in Nebraska. The southern terminus is near Louisville at an intersection with Nebraska Highway 50.

Route description

Nebraska Highway 31 begins just north of Louisville at Nebraska Highway 50. It goes west on an alignment which lies just north of the Platte River. After five and a half miles, NE 31 comes to the entrance of Schramm Park State Recreation Area, after which, it turns north. Just south of Interstate 80, NE 31 becomes a divided highway. After crossing I-80, NE 31 meets U.S. Highway 6 and the two highways begin an overlap.[2][3]

NE 31 and US 6 continue north into Gretna, where the divided highway ends. At Gretna, NE 31 and US 6 meet Nebraska Highway 370. They continue north and become divided highway again. Near the Elkhorn neighborhood of Omaha, NE 31 and US 6 meet U.S. Highway 275 and Nebraska Highway 92, which is West Center Road. Two miles later, they separate at an intersection in which they also meet Nebraska Link 28B, which is West Dodge Road.[2][3]

NE 31 continues through Elkhorn, and then meets Nebraska Highway 64. It continues north and then meets Nebraska Highway 36 and ends at an intersection southwest of Kennard with U.S. Highway 30.[2][3]
