Pavement repairs will close lanes on Cornhusker Highway overnight beginning Sunday, June 29. Lanes of Cornhusker Highway will be closed from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. from 47th to 49th streets. The intersection of 48th and Cornhusker is included in the project area. The work is scheduled to be completed the first week of August, weather permitting. The contractor may decide to work through the weekend in order to complete the work on time.
During construction, one lane in each direction will remain open at all times, however there will be disruptions as trucks and equipment enter and exit the work area. Some side streets and driveways will be closed for short durations to allow the contractor to pave the intersection. The contractor will complete the majority of the work in the overnight hours, but there will be one lane on westbound Cornhusker Highway closed during the daytime hours the week of July 7 for more extensive concrete repair work.
The project is funded with highway maintenance funds from the Nebraska Department of Roads.
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).
