Van Dorn Street Rehabilitation Project from 33rd to 48th Street

5:00 – 6:30 PM
Where: Gere Library
56th and Normal
The City of Lincoln is hosting an informational open house regarding the Van Dorn Street Rehabilitation Project from 33rd to 48th Street. This project includes street rehabilitation (concrete base repair, asphalt mill and overlay, and curb replacement), new pavement markings, new traffic signals, electrical work, and sidewalk and ramp reconstruction.
Public Works is committed to working in partnership with the neighborhoods and the community on plans for our city streets. Van Dorn Street is currently 26-feet wide from 33rd to 37th Street and 31-feet wide from 37th to 48th Street. The street rehab project will include the addition of a common center turn lane by widening of the street. Two options will be presented at the meeting for accomplishing this. Each option comes with advantages and disadvantages that should be carefully considered as we make this decision.
This meeting will be in open house format. The public is invited to stop in anytime between 5:00 pm and 6:30 pm to discuss current design options with representatives from the City's Public Works Department who will be there to answer questions and provide detail about the pros and cons of each option. The hope is to leave the meeting with a group consensus on the best strategy for the neighborhood and the community.
