City Making Progress on Street Rehab Project
Projects funded with combination of stimulus and City funds

Mayor Chris Beutler announced today that two-thirds of the City's street rehabilitation projects are expected to be finished by this fall. Eight of the 29 projects have been completed and 11 more are scheduled to be completed by the end of September. (An updated list of projects follows this release.)

In February, the City was awarded about $9.3 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding for streets and roads. Beutler directed the City Public Works and Utilities Department to add $6.9 million in local street funds for a combined roads package of about $16.2 million. The funds are being used to rehabilitate about 20 miles of arterial streets throughout the community. The City uses a pavement management analysis system to determine the condition of City roads and help prioritize repairs.

More information on the City's street projects is available at lincoln.ne.gov (keywords: projects or stimulus).
