33rd from Holdrege to Madison Mill, Overlay and Storm Drainage Improvements

January 2017

Intent of Project

This is a drainage structure and pavement preservation project intended to improve the driving surface of the existing roadway. The need for the improvement is based upon information from the City of Lincoln’s Pavement Management System (overall condition rating) and visual inspections by City staff . Pedestrian curb ramps that do not meet current Federal and local standards would also be reconstructed to meet those standards under this project.

Scope of Work

The planned construction will include repairing or replacing deteriorated concrete base, curb, milling and replacing the asphalt surface. Other work includes replacing damaged storm drainage structures and inlet tops, impacted sidewalks, and reconstructing curb ramps to adhere to requirements set forth by the Americans with Disability Act (ADA).

Project Schedule

Pavement repair along 33rd Street from Holdrege Street to Madison Avenue is expected to begin in Spring 2017 and be complete within several months after start of construction.


All work is anticipated to take place within existing right-of-way and easements.

Traffic During Construction

Work would be completed under full roadway closure between Holdrege Street and Madison Avenue. Emergency and local access would be maintained at all times.

Access to adjacent properties would be maintained and any access restrictions would be coordinated with property and business owners. Properties with multiple entrances would have one entrance open at all times, unless otherwise agreed to by the property owner. Pedestrian access to businesses, residences, and trails would be maintained throughout the duration of the project via alternate pedestrian routes and or detours.
