Street closures will begin Monday, June 9 in the area of 8th Street, 9th Street and Park Avenue for the relocation of a sanitary sewer main and the replacement of a storm drainage line.
The contractor will first relocate the sanitary sewer main along Park Avenue. The intersection of 8th Street and Park Avenue will be closed to all traffic. Park Avenue from 8th to 9th streets will be closed to through traffic during the sanitary sewer work, but local traffic will be maintained. When the relocation of the sewer line is complete, Park Avenue from 8th Street to 9th Street will be closed to all access and traffic to accommodate the storm drainage reconstruction.
The project is expected to be completed by October 1, with major portions of the reconstruction to be completed by August 15. The project is funded through the 2012 Stormwater Bond issue.
The City Public Works and Utilities Department appreciates the public's patience during construction and urges motorists to use extra caution in work zones. For more information on City construction projects, visit lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: projects).
