Stormwater Drainage and Water Quality Improvement Projects
Projects Under Construction
16th Street Reconstruction from "A" to "F"
This project provides much needed road repairs and will improve conditions of 16th St. between "A" and "F" streets. Construction of the project is anticipated to begin March 1, 2017 and be substantially completed by August 2017.
27th Street & Woods Boulevard – Water Main Replacement/Water Service Relocation Projects
The scope of this work will involve the abandonment of existing water mains, the installation of a new water main on Woods Boulevard near 27th Street, and a new main on the north side of Calvert Street across 27th Street.
33rd from Holdrege to Madison - Mill, Overlay and Storm Drainage Improvements
This is a drainage structure and pavement preservation project intended to improve the driving surface of the existing roadway. Pavement repair along 33rd Street from Holdrege Street to Madison Avenue is expected to begin in Spring 2017 and be complete within several months after start of construction.
NW 48th from W Vine to W Adams
Currently a two-lane roadway, NW 48th Street will be constructed as a four-lane divided road between W. Holdrege Street and Highway 34. South of W. Holdrege Street, the road has been designed as a six-lane road to match NDOR’s interchange project, though only five lanes are being built now. The segment between W. Adams Street and Highway 34 is not scheduled for construction at this time, but preliminary design plans have been completed.
70th from Van Dorn to Eastborough - Pavement Repair Project
This project included pavement repair, the reconstruction of pedestrian curb ramps that did not meet current federal and local standards, and the replacement of a pedestrian crossing signal at 70th Street and Lincolnshire Road. A few minor project items will be taking place in March 2017.
Cleveland from Cotner to Leonard – Water Main Replacement Project
The City of Lincoln proposes to replace the existing water main along Cleveland Street from Cotner Blvd. to Leonard St. beginning on March 27, 2017, weather permitting. This project is necessary to reduce costly water main breaks and provide customers with better water service in the area.

The Public Works and Utilities Department will begin two water main replacement projects in February 2017. Work will begin Monday, February 20th to replace the main along Nance Avenue from 8th to 12th streets. Work will begin Monday, February 27th to replace the water main along “D” Street from 12th to 20th streets.
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.
