Ten Blocks of Vine Street to be Closed Saturday

As part of the Antelope Valley Project construction, Vine Street from North 17th to North 27th streets is schedule to close for paving from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, June 5. The intersection of 27th and Vine will remain open. Eastbound traffic will be detoured to Holdrege Street, and westbound traffic will be detoured to "Q" Street.

Traffic in the area has been reduced to one lane in each direction for the past two months. Following the paving Saturday, other improvements will be made including sidewalks, retaining walls, landscaping, utilities, a center-turn lane and ornamental lighting. This work will require some lane closures throughout the summer. The speed limit will remain at 25 miles per hour.

Work on the intersection of 27th and Vine streets is expected to begin later this month. The intersection improvements, which include upgrading the pavement and traffic signals and lengthening the left-turn lanes, are scheduled to be completed by mid-August.

Vine Street is also being rebuilt from 17th to 21st streets, and preliminary work has begun on a new bridge for the future Antelope Creek Channel.

The Antelope Valley Project includes transportation improvements, stormwater management and community revitalization. Partners in the Antelope Valley Project are the City of Lincoln, the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. A map and other information is available on the City web site at Information can also be obtained by leaving a message at the Antelope Valley Hotline at 402-458-5999.
