Segment of North 16th Closed for Water Main Work

Traffic also discouraged on State Fair access road

Beginning Wednesday, January 19, North 16th Street between Holdrege and the 'Y' Street Connector will close for water main construction. The closure will begin after the morning rush hour on January 19. The water main work is scheduled to be completed by February 25, weather permitting.

Motorists are asked to avoid the area or to use caution near the construction, which may cause traffic delays. Signs will route traffic to detours using North 17th Street and the 'Y' Street Connector:

  • Westbound Holdrege Street traffic will be routed south on 17th Street to the 'Y' Street Connector, then west to 16th Street.
  • Northbound traffic will turn right off North 16th and North 17th streets at the 'Y' Street Connector, proceed northeast to the stop sign, and then go back north on 17th Street to Holdrege.

Motorists are discouraged from using the State Fair access road that runs east of the main water channel and west of the Bob Devaney Sports Center. Some motorists are reportedly using the access road to get from the road closure at 15th and Court streets to North 14th Street. Until January 19, motorists are advised to use the designated detour south on 16th Street to 'W' Street, then west two blocks to 14th. Beginning January 19, traffic is advised to use the North 17th Street and 'Y' Street Connector detour.
