Sidewalk Repair - Various Locations
August 1, 2014
The City of Lincoln has awarded a contract for sidewalk repair at various locations north of "A" Street from 8th Street to the east city limits, and S 9th Street to S 27th Street between Nebraska Highway 2 and "A" Street. The contract for this work has been awarded to Vogtscapes Inc. of Lincoln, Nebraska.
The contractor is expected to be working in association with this contract through September, 2015. 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 and 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.
If you have special needs or know of a neighbor that does, please contact us as soon as possible so we can work with you.
We request the patience and cooperation of residents in this area as the contractor progresses with this work. If you have a sprinkler system, it is advisable that you 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.
Please contact the Vogtscapes Inc. Project Superintendent or the Speece Lewis Engineer's Project Manager with concerns or to address problems during construction. You may also contact the Sidewalk Office at 402-441-7541 with any questions regarding the sidewalk repair program.
