Kennedy Freeway is the easiest way (when there isn’t an accident) to get to Bellevue from Omaha. You’ll be able to exit onto some of the other major streets running through Bellevue – Chandler, Cornhusker, Fort Crook, and Capehart Roads.

Highway 370 is another major highway. If you take it all the way east, you’ll run into Offutt Air Force Base. Take it west and you’ll get to Papillion and eventually I-80.
