City of Lincoln
Mayor Coleen J. Seng announced today that the City of Lincoln has received $291,951 from the State of Nebraska for preliminary engineering and construction of the1.9-mile Antelope Creek Trail in east Lincoln. The funds from the Transportation Enhancement Program of the Nebraska Department of Roads will be matched by the City with $130,000 ($90,000 in Keno funds and $40,000 from developers).
“These funds will help us continue the tradition of improving and expanding our trails program for the community,” said Mayor Seng. “I want to thank the Transportation Enhancement Selection Committee and the Nebraska Department of Roads for awarding us funds for this excellent project.”
The Antelope Creek Trail will begin at the end of the existing Billy Wolff Trail in the Holmes Park Dog Run near 70th Street. The trail will extend southeast to 86th Street and Old Cheney Road. This segment is the first phase of the City’s two-phase plan to extend the Antelope Creek Trail from Holmes Park to Highway 2. Construction is expected to begin in the fall of 2004 and take about one year.
