Construction will begin the week of September 14 on a concrete pavement repair and asphalt overlay project on N. 27th Street from Fletcher Avenue to Wildcat Drive, weather permitting. The work will require lane closures, but a minimum of one lane will be open in each direction, and access to adjacent properties will be maintained. Alternate pedestrian routes and/or detours will be provided during the reconstruction of curb ramps that do not meet federal and local standards. Work along this segment of 27th Street will be completed by mid-May 2016. All lanes will be open to traffic during the winter months.
Work on the 27th Street corridor is part of the current "summer of progress" on Lincoln streets. Pavement repair along S. 27th Street from Highway 2 to Woods Boulevard is on schedule to be completed by October. Work on N. 27th between Alpha and Holdrege streets is expected to begin next spring. Funding for the 27th Street projects was made available as a result of $10 million in Antelope Valley Project saving being added to street maintenance.
