Section of Vine Street Closed Mid-Day Wednesday and Thursday for Paving

New Vine Street bridge now open

Pavement work on Vine Street will close the street to traffic from 22nd to 27th streets from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. June 15 and 16 (weather permitting). Vine Street will remain open during the morning and afternoon rush hours both days. The intersection of 27th and Vine will remain open. Eastbound Vine Street traffic will be detoured to Holdrege Street, and westbound traffic will be detoured to 'Q' Street.

Also, the new Vine Street bridge over the Antelope Creek channel is now open. The new bridge is just north of the previous Vine Street at about 19th Street.

Remaining work on Vine Street includes pavement, sidewalks, retaining walls, landscaping, utilities and lighting. That work will require some lane closures throughout the summer. The speed limit will remain at 25 miles per hour. Vine Street is scheduled to have two lanes open in each direction by August 15.

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. Additional information can be obtained by leaving a message at the Antelope Valley Hotline at 402-458-5999.
