17th from South to "A"
May 17, 2013
The City of Lincoln proposes to rehabilitate South 17th Street from South Street to A Street beginning on May 21, 2013, weather permitting. The existing asphalt pavement will be milled off, and the concrete base will be removed in the outside lanes. The existing stone curb will be removed and salvaged while some of the curb will be integrated back into the rehabilitated roadway. New concrete base will be poured in the outside lanes along with new curb and gutter. The roadway will be overlaid with new asphalt and pavement markings. Pedestrian curb ramps along 17th Street will be reconstructed to meet ADA standards. Construction is expected to take eight weeks.
Pavers Inc. will be the contractor. They will perform the work under a total street closure with the road closed to through traffic. The detour for 17th Street will be west on South Street to South 13th Street, north on South 13th Street to A Street, and east on A Street to 17th Street. During the construction operations, access to side streets and to driveways will be restricted at times. The City will work with local businesses and residences regarding access during construction.
If a business or residence has a sprinkler system along the project route, either in close proximity to the curb ramps, driveways, and alley returns, or along the curb line of 17th Street, they are asked to flag the sprinkler heads to aid the contractor in minimizing damage.
