Beginning Friday, October 28, the Lincoln Electric System (LES) will conduct vegetation maintenance under the transmission line running through Wilderness Park. The line runs from about S. First Street and Old Cheney Road northeast to near the Nebraska State Penitentiary. Trails will remain open, but park visitors should be aware of LES crews working in the area.
Crews will be removing trees and brush underneath the lines to protect the line and ensure access for maintenance and repairs. Crews will be chipping branches on site and spreading the wood chips over the ground. The work is expected to be completed in one week.
