"P" St. Streetscape Project

11th Street to Centennial Mall

June 13, 2014 Construction Update

It continues to be very busy along "P" Street as project activities focus on the north side of the street. Every business remains open and accessible during the construction. Sidewalk closures do continue to change on a regular basis so please pay attention to the pedestrian routing that is in place when trying to access a particular business.

Parking along the south side of "P" Street is nearly completed from 11th Street to 14th Street. Crews continue to work on small items throughout this area.

The work on the east side of 14th Street from "O" to "P" Streets is substantially complete. Sidewalks are complete and most of the parking is available to use. All of the businesses are accessible to pedestrians and outdoor dining areas at some of the restaurants are re-installed and available for use.

The restoration of sidewalk along the south side of "P" Street from 14th Street to Centennial Mall has been substantially completed. The sidewalk remains closed due to a private contractor restoring a building in the area.

The north side of "P" Street from 11th Street to 12th Street is nearing completion. The contractor has restored most of the pavement and has completed the entire storm sewer. The sidewalk corridor is currently open along the building fronts, and access to all businesses is being maintained through the duration of this work. The silva cells are complete and crews are working to finish light pole, landscape curb, bench footings, and sidewalk.

Work along the block from 12th to 13th Streets is underway. A sidewalk corridor has been restored along the block which maintains access to all of the businesses. Most of the parking setback is completed, and crews will continue to work on the sidewalks, silva cells, planting areas, and light pole bases.

The closure of 13th Street between "P" Street and "Q" Street continues. The work will help to keep both the "P" Street Project and the Civic Plaza Project on schedule for the remainder of the summer. Numerous design changes have taken place due to unforeseen conditions in this area, but the crew continues to work and accomplish necessary activities. This work should be substantially completed in the next few weeks.

Work on the block from 13th Street to 14th Street is not yet taking place east of the Civic Plaza area. Please watch for an update on this location.

The contractor began work on the north side of "P" Street from 14th Street to Centennial Mall beginning on Monday, June 9. The pedestrian corridor to all of the businesses is complete and access to all businesses is available. Demolition of the pavement continues to take place and storm sewer work should begin next week. The Lincoln Children's Museum curbside drop-off location moved to the east, still on the north side of "P" Street, between Centennial Mall and 16th Street. Please note the signs directing you to this location.
