Old Cheney Pavement Repair Begins September 8

The "Summer of Progress" on Lincoln streets is continuing with improvements along Old Cheney Road. Pavement repair along Old Cheney Road from Warlick Boulevard to 40th Street is scheduled to begin Tuesday, September 8. The section from 27th to 40th streets is scheduled to be completed by November 2015, weather permitting. All remaining pavement repairs and related work along Old Cheney will be completed by mid-July 2016.

The work will require lane closures, but a minimum of one lane will be open in each direction, and access to adjacent properties will be maintained. Construction will include the repair or

replacement of deteriorated concrete panels, joints and curbs; sealing cracks; and the replacement of damaged storm sewer inlet tops and curb ramps that do not meet federal and local standards. Trails along Old Cheney will be temporarily impacted during curb ramp construction, but alternate routes and detours will be provided.

The repair of Old Cheney was moved up two years as a result of $10 million in Antelope Valley Project saving being added to street maintenance. The new funding more than doubled the City's two-year investment, which now includes improvements to other major City corridors such as 27th Street, North 84th Street, Normal Boulevard, Superior Street and West "O" Street. More information on other City street projects is available at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: streets).
