A public open house is set for Thursday, April 26 on a stream improvement project for Tyrrell Park in northeast Lincoln. The project area is directly north of Mickle Middle School, and the open house will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. in the school cafeteria, 2500 N. 67th Street (enter through the main west door).
The project includes stormwater quality improvements and efforts to reduce potential flooding. The design includes a new walking trail through the park with educational exhibits. At the open house, residents are invited to discuss the plan and provide input to staff from the City of Lincoln and EA Engineering, the project consultant. Construction is expected to begin this summer and take about 60 days.
The project is a joint effort of the Watershed Management Division of the Public Works and Utilities Department and the Parks and Recreation Department. It is being partially funded through a grant from the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality. For more information, contact Ed Kouma in Watershed Management at 402-441-7018.
