Stormwater Drainage and Water Quality Improvement Projects
Projects Under Construction
14th and Goodhue Area Sidewalk Repair Project
This sidewalk repair project will take place along the west and east sides of 14th Street and Goodhue Boulevard between "B" Street and "C" Street, and along the north and south sides of "B" and "C" Streets from 14th Street to Goodhue Boulevard.
27th from Leighton to "N" Sidewalk Repair Project
This repair contract encompasses both sides of 27th Street from Leighton Avenue to "N" Street. The repair work will involve removal and replacement of marked sections of sidewalk and construction of curb access ramps at intersections where ramps do not currently exist.

40th from South to Van Dorn Water Main Replacement
75th and Dotson Area Water Main Replacement
Water mains will be replaced along 75th from Steinway to Dotson, Dotson from 75th to Broadview, and Broadview from Steinway to Skyway. Construction is expected to take twelve weeks and will begin on North 75th Street.
Lincoln Airport Entryway Corridor
The Lincoln Airport Entryway Corridor project includes pavement repairs and streetscape enhancements along W. Adams Street, NW 12th Street, W. Cornhusker Highway and 9th/10th Streets at "S" Street.

"P" St. Streetscape Project
The City of Lincoln Public Works Department is currently working with the Urban Development Department and Hausmann Construction on the completion of the "P" Street Streetscape Project. This project is a part of the greater Downtown Lincoln Master Plan PDF and continues to build on the growth and redevelopment taking place in the Downtown area.
Stormwater Improvement Bond Issues
Stormwater improvement bond issues provide for design and construction of urban storm drainage projects, flood reduction projects, stream rehabilitation and waterway work, design and construction of master planned basin projects, water quality projects incorporating best management practices, and preliminary engineering for basin master plans to determine future projects. These improvements reduce stormwater runoff and flooding if major rains occur, reduce flooding impacts from major stream channels, prevent or repair degraded stream channels, and improve water quality.
Antelope Park Stream Improvements, Sheridan Street to South Street
Key elements include grade stabilization structures to reduce the erosion in the stream, bio-retention areas to reduce flow and encourage stormwater to infiltrate into the ground, wetland enhancements, rain gardens and selective plantings to act as a buffer and filter stormwater before it reaches the stream.
Antelope Park Bioretention Areas SW of 33rd and South
This project will consist of creating two bioretention areas that will treat and remove pollutants from water flowing through the area.
Antelope Park from "A" to South Streets
This project aims to improve stormwater quality, reduce stormwater flow velocities, and provide environmental education opportunities for the general public.
Lincoln Children's Zoo Water Quality and Educational Project
Major features of this project include a "green" roof on the Animal Kingdom Building, bioretention and bioswale areas, permeable pavers and a rainwater cistern to collect roof runoff. Educational aspects of the project will be promoted through educational signage, an observation deck that will allow public viewing of the “green” roof, and an interactive educational area near the rainwater cistern.
