The continuing renovation of Nebraska's Centennial Mall will result in sidewalk and lane closures at the "O" Street intersection beginning Monday, June 30. The north half of the intersection will close on that date, and traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction on the south half. When work on the north half is completed, the south half will close with traffic restricted to one lane in each direction on the north half. The project is expected to take about 35 to 40 days, weather permitting.
All businesses in the area will remain open and accessible to customers. Pedestrians will be guided by barricades and detour signs.
The work is part of the second phase of renovation for Nebraska's Centennial Mall and includes the removal and reconstruction of the street pavement and pedestrian crosswalks in the "O" Street intersection. The adjacent sidewalks and curb ramps were reconstructed as part of the first phase of renovation in 2012 and 2013. Meco-Henne Contracting is the contractor for the second phase.
