As part of the Antelope Valley Project construction, North 17th Street from 'Y' to Holdrege streets will close to through traffic beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, March 29. 'Y' Street also will close between 16th and 17th streets. The closures are expected to last two to three months. The sections will remain open to local traffic only. The closure of these sections will allow for the completion of the new connections between 'Y' and 17th streets to the east.

North 17th was closed permanently last month from 'Y' south one block to the new 'Y' Street Connector to allow for construction of a new bridge. With the additional 17th Street closure, all northbound and southbound traffic in the area will now use 16th Street from the Holdrege intersection to the new 'Y' Connector. This section of 16th Street shifted from one-way to two-way traffic in February. In conjunction with the construction, the speed limit has changed from 35 to 25 miles per hour in the area.

The Antelope Valley Project includes transportation improvements, stormwater management and community revitalization. Partners in the Antelope Valley Project are the City of Lincoln, the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

A map and other information is available on the City web site at Information can also be obtained by leaving a message at the Antelope Valley Hotline at 402-458-5999.
