North 56th Open, North Cotner Now Closed
North 56th Street between "O" and "R" streets has reopened to traffic. North Cotner Boulevard between "O" and "R" Streets is closed until the end of May. Construction crews will install a new water main and storm sewers in North Cotner and re-pave this section of the street.

Motorists have access to local businesses in the affected area, and drivers should watch for signs guiding them to businesses. Customers can access businesses between "P" and "R" on the west side of Cotner from the intersection of "R" Street and Cotner; businesses on the east side of Cotner between "O" and "R" can be accessed from "R" Street and Gateway Mall. Businesses on "P" Street between 56th and Cotner will be accessible from 56th Street only.

Northbound drivers on South Cotner may still turn both left and right onto "O" Street, but westbound drivers on "O" Street are prohibited from turning left onto South Cotner.

Left turns are allowed from "O" Street onto 56th Street in both directions.

The latest information on the construction project can be found on the 24-hour East "O" Street Information Line, 441-0432, and on the city website at
