Beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, March 30, South 40th Street between Gertie Avenue and Clifford Drive will be closed as part of the Lincoln On The Move rehabilitation project. There will be no side street access onto South 40th Street, and the sidewalks on both sides will also be closed. The street is scheduled to reopen Friday, August 7. Adjacent landscaping work will be completed September 18.
StarTran bus route 56-Sheridan inbound stops in this area will be detoured. Digital signs will alert travelers to upcoming work and closures. Access to homes will be maintained whenever possible. Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times. Travelers should seek alternate routes.
This project includes widening South 40th Street between Gertie Avenue and Locust Street to three lanes to accommodate a two-way center turn lane, new water lines, storm sewer upgrades, resurfacing, new sidewalks and pedestrian curb ramps.
Drivers are reminded to exercise caution around work zones. Lincoln Transportation and Utilities appreciate the public's patience during this project.
