North 33rd Street between Holdrege Street and Madison Avenue will reopen at 10 a.m. Saturday, September 23. The street had been closed since July 5 for storm sewer and pavement repairs. Temporary lane closures will occur in the next few weeks as crews complete sodding and other minor work. Motorists are advised to continue using caution at this time.
Other improvements included metal-topped storm sewer inlets; curb ramp and sidewalk repair to meet ADA guidelines; and design changes to support area businesses and agencies, such as UNL's Nebraska Tractor Test Laboratory and Nebraska Educational Television.
This section of N. 33rd St. serves a significant commuter population in the area of UNL East Campus, Clinton and Hartley elementary schools and Fleming Fields. The project was coordinated with N. 27th Street construction to ensure north-south traffic flow.
The Public Works and Utilities Department appreciates the public's patience during this project. More information about the project is available at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: 33rd). For more information on other City projects, visit lincoln.ne.gov (projects).
