Cleveland from Cotner to Leonard – Water Main Replacement Project

March 17, 2017

The City of Lincoln proposes to replace the existing water main along Cleveland Street from Cotner Blvd. to Leonard St. beginning on March 27, 2017, weather permitting. This project is necessary to reduce costly water main breaks and provide customers with better water service in the area. Construction of the project is expected to take seven weeks. TJ Osborn Construction will be the contractor.

Lincoln Water System appreciates the public’s patience during this time of construction. The contractor will perform the work while keeping two-way traffic open on Cotner Blvd. Cleveland St. will remain open to local residents, although on-street parking restrictions will be in effect during construction. The City and Contractor will work with property owners to maintain vehicular and pedestrian access during construction, but brief restrictions to driveways may be necessary.

Near the end of the project, a brief disruption in water service will occur during the transfer of service lines to the new main. The Lincoln Water Department will notify all property owners ahead of time when to expect service disruption.
