The public is invited to open houses next week on two street rehabilitation projects:
Both meetings are from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Gere Library, 56th Street and Normal Blvd. The open houses will include presentations at 4:45 and 5:45 p.m. Both projects include the widening of the roadway to add a common center-turn lane. Two design and construction options will be presented at the open houses. The public is invited to discuss the options with representatives from the City Public Works and Utilities Department, who will answer questions and provide detail on the advantages and disadvantages of each option.
Both projects also include concrete base repair, asphalt mill and overlay, curb replacement, new pavement markings, traffic signal and electrical work and sidewalk and ramp reconstruction. No major intersection work is planned on 56th at South, "A" or Randolph streets. The Pioneers Blvd. project does include the complete replacement of the intersections at 33rd, 40th and 48th streets.
More information on the projects is available at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: projects). More information on the open houses is available by contacting Holly Lionberger, Public Works and Utilities, at 441-8400, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
