Trails Projects

We are always making improvements to our trails system.  Check back often for updates on our current and future projects. 

Recent closures, construction and pavement repair affecting trails

  • The Army Corps of Engineers is working on major maintenance of the Salt Creek Levee from Calvert Street to Superior Street. This work requires periodic closures along the Salt Creek Levee Trail. Press releases are posted on the City’s home page when closures occur.
  • Beal Slough Trail

    • The proposed trail project would construct approximately 1.88 miles of trail through the Beal Slough Greenway and Jonathan Gapp Park corridor in a southeast portion of the City of Lincoln (City). The trail would begin east of 56th Street and north of London Road at the existing 56th Street Sidepath. The trail alignment would extend southeast along the east side of Beal Slough and west of the Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) railroad tracks until it connects to the Pine Lake Road Sidepath. South of Pine Lake Road, the trail extends southeast along the east side of the railroad. Near 70th Street, the alignment continues south on the west side of 70th Street until it connects to the existing Yankee Hill Road Sidepath.

    Other Trails Projects


  • West A Street Sidepath: The Lincoln Transportation and Utilities Department is currently working on a multi-year widening and intersection improvement of West A Street from S. Folsom Street west to the City limits at about SW 37th Street. This project will include construction of an 8 foot wide sidepath from the Highway 77 overpass to the western City Limits. The project will be built in phases and should be completed in 2021.

  • Rock Island to Jamaica North Connector: This project will construct a trail connection and bridges over the active railroad tracks just west of Densmore Park. This will connect the Rock Island Trail to the Jamaica North Trail. The project is expected to be completed in October of 2020.

  • Salt Creek Levee Trail J Street Underpass: Currently, the Salt Creek Levee Trail leaves the levee south of J Street to cross under the railroad tracks at 1st Street and then returns to the levee. This is one of the busiest points in the railroad system, representing the eastern edge of Hobson Yard where train enter and leave, crossing Salt Creek. The Lower Platte South NRD has been working through this complex project for several years now. Utility easements and railroad coordination have made this a challenging undertaking! But construction is planned to happen soon.

  • Prairie Corridor Trail: There are two segments of the Prairie Corridor Trail that are currently in some stage of development. One is at Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center, which will be the southern extent of the Prairie Corridor Trail as planned. This segment will be complete in October 2020. The other involves construction of a bridge and railroad undercrossing on the Stiefel Johnson Trailhead near SW 84th and Old Cheney Road and will connect that to the100 acre Two Creeks Prairie.
