The Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) is the state government agency charged with building and maintaining the state and federal highways in the U.S. State of Nebraska, as well as the state's airports. The main headquarters of the agency is located in Lincoln, the capital city. There are currently eight NDOR district offices located across the state.

The agency was formed on July 1, 2017 following the merger of the Nebraska Department of Roads and the Nebraska Department of Aeronautics[2], the last of all 50 US states to do something of the like.
