56th from "A" to Randolph
Arterial Street Rehabilitation

Project Information

May 29, 2013

The City of Lincoln proposes to rehabilitate 56th from "A" to Randolph beginning on June 3, 2013, weather permitting. The existing concrete base will be removed in the outside lanes. The existing west curb will remain in place. 56th Street will be widened to 35 feet to accommodate a center common left turn lane. New concrete base will be poured in the outside lanes along with new curb and gutter. The roadway will be overlaid with new asphalt and pavement markings. Pedestrian curb ramps along 56th Street will be reconstructed to meet ADA standards. Construction is expected to take eight weeks. Utility relocations by LES, Windstream, Time Warner Cable, and Black Hills Energy will be taking place with this project.

Constructors Inc. will be the contractor. They will perform the work under a total street closure with the road closed to through traffic. The detour for 56th Street will be west of "A" to 48th, north on 48th to Randolph, and east on Randolph to 56th. During the construction operations, access to side streets and driveways will be restricted at times. The City will work with local businesses and residences regarding access during construction.

If a business or residence has a sprinkler system along the project route, either in close proximity to the curb ramps, driveways, and alley returns or along the curb line of South 56th Street, they are asked to flag the sprinkler heads to aid the contractor in minimizing damage.
