Trees to Be Removed Along Next Segment of Antelope Valley Roadway

City Public Works officials today announced that trees along the next segment of the Antelope Valley Roadway Project corridor are scheduled to be removed over the next few weeks. Trees will be removed along 19th Street from 'P' to 'R' streets, along 'S' Street east of 19th Street, and east of the Beadle Center's south parking lot.

Approximately 100 trees of various sizes along the future Antelope Valley roadway will be removed and used as mulch. The trees are being removed now to prevent disruption of birds during nesting season. Once the roadway project is complete, new trees and landscaping will be planted along the corridor. Construction of the roadway segment from 'P' Street to Vine Street is scheduled to begin during the summer of 2009 and is tentatively scheduled for completion in the summer of 2010.

The Antelope Valley Project a joint venture of the City of Lincoln, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District is a flood control, traffic improvement and community revitalization project in the core of the city.
