Sidewalk Repair - Various Locations

June 5, 2014

The City of Lincoln has awarded a contract for sidewalk repair at various locations south of Highway 2 from 14th Street to 27th Street, and also in the area east of 27th Street to the east city limits from "A" Street to the south city limits. The contract for this work has been awarded to Walton Construction of Lincoln, Nebraska.

The contractor is expected to start work in association with this contract the week of June 23, 2014. The repair work will involve removal and replacement of marked sections of sidewalk. There will be some inconvenience to residents in this area as sidewalk sections are removed, replaced and sidewalk locations are closed and barricaded to complete this work. Driveways may also be closed for short durations to complete work on sidewalk through the drive.

We request the patience and cooperation of residents in this area as the contractor progresses with this work. Residents with a sprinkler system are advised to mark the location of the sprinkler lines and heads. It is the City's policy that sprinkler systems are a private improvement located in the public right-of-way. The Public Works and Utilities Department will not accept responsibility for repair of sprinkler systems which are located adjacent to the sidewalk.

This project is funded with funds allocated through Certificates of Participation issued by the Lincoln City Council. The Public Works and Utilities Department will administer this contract. Speece Lewis Engineers will provide project management and inspection as the contractor progresses with the sidewalk repair work. You may contact the Public Works and Utilities Department's Sidewalk Office at 402-441-7541 with any questions regarding the Sidewalk Repair Program.
