Beginning Monday, January 14, the City will allow parking on the north side of Lincoln Mall from 11th to 14th streets until parking along 14th Street on the west side of the Capitol is restored. Parking has not been allowed on the east side of 14th street from "H" to "K" since December 17 because of a water main replacement project. The contractor expects to finish that project by the end of the month.
Public Works and Utilities Director Miki Esposito said the temporary parking will be allowed to accommodate those attending hearings and other proceedings of the Nebraska Legislature. The legislative session started January 9.
The City will temporarily remove the "no parking" signs on the north side of Lincoln Mall, and the Lincoln Police Department has been notified of the change.
