Van Dorn from 37th to 40th
Water Main Replacement Project

April 29, 2015

The City of Lincoln will be replacing the existing water main along the north side of Van Dorn Street between 37th Street and 40th Street. Weather permitting, the contractor will start locating utilities in the area beginning April 30, 2015. Construction will then begin on Monday, May 4, 2015. The water main is scheduled to be completed by June 15, 2015. A majority of the project will be bored underground so there will be limited surface disruption. Upon completion of the installation and chlorination of the water main, the contractor will change over water service lines to the new water main.

TJ Osborn Construction will be the contractor for the project. The work will be performed with the north lane of Van Dorn closed. This will require head to head traffic from 37th Street to 40th Street. During water main construction there should only be minor disruption to driveway access. There may also be brief water service outages during the construction of the water main.

This project will overlap the Van Dorn Street; 33rd Street - 48th Street widening project which is scheduled to start May 26, 2015.
