Downtown Lincoln Street Resurfacing Project

This pavement preservation project in the Lincoln Central Business District was done to maintain and improve the driving surface of the existing roadway facilities. The need for the project was based on information from the City of Lincoln's Pavement Management System overall condition index rating and visual inspections by City staff. Traffic signals that reached the end of their useful life were replaced and pedestrian curb ramps that did not meet current ADA standards were reconstructed.

Six miles of roadway surfacing on eleven streets in the Lincoln Central Business District had two inches of the existing driving surface milled off, minor base repairs completed as necessary and the driving surface overlaid with two inches of new asphalt. Pedestrian curb ramps not meeting current ADA standards were reconstructed. Three traffic signals on "N" Street (13th, 14th and Centennial Mall) and four traffic signals on "Q" Street (9th, 10th, 16th and 17th) were replaced as part of this project.
