Public Invited to Meeting on East Leg of Antelope Valley Roadway

The public is invited to an informational meeting Tuesday, October 23 on the future east leg of the "Big X" bridge and roadway, a key component of the Antelope Valley Project. The meeting is from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Lancaster Building, 1800 State Fair Park Drive.

Construction is expected to begin in October on the project to build a new bridge extending east from the current elevated intersection over the BNSF railway near the Devaney Center. The bridge will touch down parallel to State Fair Park Drive, and the new roadway will extend to North 27th Street. The north and west legs of the elevated intersection opened in August 2006, and the south leg opened in November 2006.

No formal presentations will be made at the meeting, but details of the proposed improvements will be discussed. The meeting is sponsored by the Joint Antelope Valley Authority (JAVA), a partnership among the City of Lincoln, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District. Representatives from JAVA, the construction management team and the contractor, Hawkins Construction Company, will be available at the meeting to answer questions.

Antelope Valley is a flood control, traffic improvement and community revitalization project in the core of the City. More information is available at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: antelope). This Web site will have the most current information regarding the construction schedule and traffic accommodations.

The meeting room is accessible for persons with disabilities. Those needing special accommodations are asked to call Parsons Brinckerhoff at 402-323-6570.

For more information you may contact Wayne Teten, Antelope Valley Project Manager, 441-4939, or Scott Rathjen, Parsons Brinckerhoff, 402-323-6562.
