"P" St. Streetscape Project

11th Street to Centennial Mall

July 25, 2014 Construction Update

Asphalt patching and pavement markings were substantially completed during the last three weeks. Drivers will notice new lane patterns throughout the site. Please continue to take extra care while driving and walking in the area of the project site. All businesses remain open and accessible during the work. Please continue to be aware of the pedestrian routing along "P" Street while accessing businesses.

The contractor is working on cleaning and opening up on-street parking in as many places as possible along the north side of "P" Street.

Work along the block from 12th to 13th Streets is nearly complete. Temporary parking is being completed through a section of this block. Beginning today and lasting throughout the next couple of weeks the sidewalk at the northwest corner of 13th Street may be closed at times to allow completion of final underground utilities and the sidewalk concrete. When this work takes place the businesses between 12th and 13th will be accessible from the west and the businesses on 13th Street between "P" and "Q" Streets will be accessible from the north. Please be patient and pay attention to the closures and detours.

Work on the block from 13th Street to 14th Street has begun to take place underground on construction of the Silva cells. The contractor is maintaining a permanent pedestrian corridor to all of the businesses along this block.

Work continues to take place on the north side of "P" Street from 14th Street to Centennial Mall, as well as along the east side of 14th Street north of "P" Street. The pedestrian corridor is in place and open to all businesses. The sidewalk access around the northeast corner of 14th and "P" Street is set to close on Monday, July 28. Businesses will remain open and accessible at all times. Those along 14th Street north of "P" Street are accessible from the north off "Q" Street. Businesses along "P" Street including the Lincoln Children's Museum will be accessible from the east off Centennial Mall. The museum curbside drop-off continues to be temporarily located on the north side of "P" Street, between Centennial Mall and 16th Street. Please note the signs directing you to this location.

The limestone benches will also continue to be installed, and some of the pedestrian light poles are expected to be installed in the coming weeks. Some of the outdoor deck areas will also begin to be constructed in the coming week. The contractor has begun to work on punch-list items along the south side of the street. These items may include areas that are damaged and required repair before the project is complete.
