CIP Project – Prescott from 47th to 48th

July 26, 2013

The City of Lincoln has awarded a contract for utility, paving and sidewalk reconstruction on Prescott Avenue from South 47th to South 48th Street. The contract for this work has been awarded to Constructors Inc. of Lincoln, Nebraska. This project is a Capital Improvement Project to reconstruct the street paving, water main, storm sewer, lighting and sidewalk in one block of Prescott Avenue.

The contractor is expected to start work in association with this contract the week beginning August 12, 2013. The contract work will include removal of the existing paving and sidewalk within the entire block. The street will be closed to all vehicle traffic and parking for the duration of the project. Pedestrian access on existing and temporary sidewalks will be maintained along both sides of the street for access to the local businesses.

We request the patience and cooperation of motorists and pedestrians in this area as the contractor progresses with this work. This project is funded with Capital Improvement funds administered through the Lincoln Public Works and Urban Development Departments. The Public Works and Utilities Department will administer this contract. Contacts for the project are listed below.
