40th from South to "A"
July 10, 2013
The City of Lincoln proposes to widen and rehabilitate South 40th Street from South Street to "A" Street beginning on July 17, 2013, weather permitting. The existing asphalt pavement will be milled off, and the concrete base will be removed in the outside lanes. New concrete base and curb and gutter will be poured in the outside lanes, and the final roadway will be 2' wider than the current street. New storm drain inlets will be constructed and fire hydrant relocations will take place as a result of the roadway widening. The roadway will be overlaid with new asphalt and pavement markings. Pedestrian curb ramps along 40th Street will be reconstructed to meet ADA standards. Construction is expected to take seven weeks.
Pavers Inc. will be the contractor. They will perform the work under a total street closure with the road closed to through traffic. Traffic from 40th Street will be detoured to 48th Street utilizing South Street and "A" Street. During the construction operations, access to side streets and driveways will be restricted at times. The City will work with local businesses and residences regarding access during construction. If a business or residence has a sprinkler system along the project route, either in close proximity to the curb ramps, to driveways, or along the curb line of 40th Street, they are asked to flag the sprinkler heads to aid the contractor in minimizing damage.
