Lincoln Airport Entryway Corridor Project

Project Summary

The Lincoln Airport Entryway Corridor project includes pavement repairs and streetscape enhancements along the following streets:

  • W. Adams Street
  • NW 12th Street
  • W. Cornhusker Highway
  • 9th/10th Streets at "S" Street

The project will repair and resurface the existing pavement and construct new curbs, storm drainage inlet tops and curb ramps. Significant streetscape enhancements will also be incorporated with the project and include district markers and pole-mounted banners with trees and median plantings included as part of a separate, but coordinated project.

Construction Update

March 12, 2014

Lane closures will start on Monday, March 17, 2014 at 11th Street and Cornhusker Highway, weather permitting. Driveway access will be maintained throughout the project corridor as much as possible. However, in order to complete the pavement repairs, milling of the existing roadway surface and resurfacing the roadway, there will be times when driveways will not be accessible. The contractor will reach out to affected property/business owners to coordinate the associated construction activity in an attempt to minimize these impacts.

Please pay particular attention to the signage and barricading in these areas to help us maintain a safe work zone. Traffic along Cornhusker Highway is being managed through lane closures and traffic control signage.
