Beginning Monday, April 14, traffic on "P" Street from 13th Street through the Centennial Mall intersection will be shifted to one north lane as part of the streetscape project. The traffic signal at the intersection will be temporarily deactivated. Work will include the removal and replacement of all paving and sidewalks at the intersection and is expected to take 30 days.
Access to businesses, the Lincoln Children's Museum and the Nebraska History Museum are being maintained during the project, and more information is available on the Downtown Lincoln Association's website at PStreetDistrict.com. Pedestrians are encouraged to follow the sidewalk detours to help maintain a safe work zone. In areas where parking is temporarily unavailable, the meters will be covered with hoods.
The "P" Street District project area is between 11th Street and Centennial Mall and on the east side of 14th Street between "O" and "Q" streets. The project includes a total redesign of the streetscape, parking and rights-of-way incorporating specialized lighting, plants and public spaces.
