Portion of Tower Square to Close Friday

Beginning Friday, March 22, a portion of the Lincoln Community Foundation Tower Square, 13th and "P" streets, will close for repairs to the "Ascent" tower. Work is expected to be completed by mid-April. Only an area around the sculpture will be closed.

The renovation requires the removal of the interior LED panels and replacement of damaged glass panels. The sculpture was designed by artist Jun Kaneko in and dedicated in December 2014.

"We are fortunate to have an endowment established with private donations that provides the funding to make repairs when necessary. We ask that everyone be careful while walking through Tower Square during the period of repair work for both the protection of themselves and the artisans working on the tower," said J.J. Yost, Planning and Construction Supervisor.
