Section of North 16th Street to Close Permanently

Section of North 17th to close temporarily for water main work

Beginning Monday, March 21 after the morning rush hour, North 16th Street between Holdrege and the 'Y' Street connector will close permanently to through traffic for excavation of the Antelope Creek channel. The closure also is necessary for construction of the "Big T" roadway south of the Devaney Center, a key part of the Antelope Valley Project. Access to the UNL residence halls will be maintained from the south.

At the same time, North 17th Street between Holdrege and Court streets will close for about two weeks for water main work. Traffic is discouraged in the area until this section of North 17th Street reopens. During this time, all visitors to State Fair Park are directed to use either the new 14th Street entrance or the State Fair Park Drive entrance off of North 27th Street. To reach the two parking lots south of Devaney, motorists are directed to use the 14th Street entrance.

The Antelope Valley Project includes flood control, transportation improvements and community revitalization. About 25 percent of the Antelope Valley flood channel has been built. More information can also be obtained by leaving a message at the Antelope Valley Hotline at 402-458-5999.
