Lane Closures on Vine Street Extended

As part of the Antelope Valley Project construction, lane closures on Vine Street will be extended this week. The north two lanes of Vine have been closed from North 17th to North 26th streets. Beginning at 9 a.m. tomorrow, Tuesday June 22, the north two lanes of Vine also will be closed from 26th to 28th streets.

Two-way traffic will be maintained on the south two lanes of Vine. All left turns at the intersection of 27th and Vine streets will be prohibited.

The closures are necessary for the installation of utilities and paving. Other improvements planned in the area include sidewalks, retaining walls, landscaping, a center-turn lane and ornamental lighting. This work will require 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 early next 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.

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.
