The public is invited to an open house Wednesday, May 4 on a pavement project on Vine Street from 27th to 48th streets. The open house is from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Hartley Elementary School, 730 N. 33rd Street. Attendees should enter through the south door and proceed to the gym.
The project includes milling the existing asphalt surface and overlaying the street with new asphalt, as well as repairing deteriorated concrete pavement, medians and curbs. Other work includes removing and replacing damaged storm drainage inlet tops, building pedestrian curb ramps, making utility adjustments and restoring traffic signal elements impacted by the work.
The project will also remove portions of the intersections at 33rd, 45th and 48th streets and replace them with concrete pavement. The intersection work will require total closures to through traffic. Only one intersection will be closed at a time. Each intersection is expected to take no more than eight days to complete, and detours will be in place. The remainder of the work will require lane closures, with at least one lane open to traffic in both directions. Construction is scheduled to begin in late May and be completed by mid-October, weather permitting.
The meeting is an opportunity for the public to meet with City officials and the contractor and to learn about the construction schedule and access during construction. No formal presentations are planned. More information is available at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: projects). Those with questions on the project or open house may contact Zach Becker, City Public Works and Utilities Department, at 402-613-3763 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
