The public is invited to the second open house on the proposed design of water quality improvements for Antelope Creek near 70th Street and Pioneers Boulevard. The open house is from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 27 at the Hyde Memorial Observatory in Holmes Park.
The project area runs along Antelope Creek from about 75th Street and Pioneers Boulevard on the south to Holmes Lake and the dog run on the north.
Design work has been completed for the project, which includes stabilizing the banks to prevent ongoing erosion, constructing additional water quality wetland areas and protecting areas of high foot traffic. Construction is expected to begin this summer.
At the open house, representatives of the City of Lincoln and its project consultants will be available to discuss the proposed design and answer questions. No formal presentation is scheduled.
Individuals with questions prior to the open house should contact Don Day, Olsson Associates, at 402-458-5644, or Ed Kouma, City of Lincoln, at 402-441-7018.
To reach Hyde Memorial Observatory, go west on the South Shore Road entrance to Holmes Golf Course off of 70th Street. Continue past the golf course turnoff. The observatory is on your left.
