Stormwater Drainage and Water Quality Improvement Projects
Projects Under Construction
35th and Randolph Area Water Main Replacement Project
The water main on Randolph Street will be replaced from South 28th Street to South 40th Street and along South 35th Street from "D" Street to Randolph Street.
40th from South to Van Dorn Water Main Replacement
49th and Rentworth Storm Drain Improvements
This project includes the installation of additional storm sewer pipe and inlets. These additions will improve drainage by allowing more water to be removed from the street, which will reduce ponding and street flooding.
56th from "A" to Randolph
Beginning at 8 a.m. Wednesday, October 8, the southbound 56th Street traffic lanes from Randolph Street to "A" Street will close for Lincoln Electric System power line work. The closure will be daily from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and is expected to last about three weeks.
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.
Old Cheney from 70th to 82nd
Because of rising traffic volumes, Old Cheney's existing two-lane rural street will be upgraded to a four-lane urban street with left turn lanes, curbs and gutters.

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 Water Quality Projects
Water quality features included in the project are bioretention cells and swales, pervious pavement, amended soils, a "green roof" and a rainwater harvesting cistern. The project also includes educational components.
EPA Technical Assistance on Green Infrastructure Provided to City of Lincoln
EPA's consultant, Tetra Tech, Inc., will work with the City's Public Works Department to develop fact sheets on five green infrastructure practices, develop strategies for reducing pollutants in the Antelope Creek watershed, and work with Lincoln Public Schools Science Focus Program on a green infrastructure design charette at the Lincoln Children's Zoo.
