With road construction season under way, motorists can find updated information on street closures and detours on a city-wide map on the City website, lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: detours).
All current and pending major street closures are marked, along with recommended detour routes, and the map is updated every Friday afternoon. The map now posted includes the street closures for the Lincoln Marathon Sunday, May 6.
Each major street closure has a corresponding link to a project page, which includes additional information such as construction phasing, public meetings, contacts and related projects.
"We hope providing the most up-to-date, comprehensive and user-friendly information possible regarding street construction, closures and detours will help residents plan their routes," said Miki Esposito, Director of the City Public Works and Utilities Department. "We greatly appreciate the patience and cooperation of Lincoln's motorists, the business community and the citizens in general as we work to improve Lincoln's roadways and infrastructure."
To receive the information as soon as it's available, the public can subscribe to RSS notifications or e-mail alerts by using the links on the street closure and detour site.
