Sidewalk Repair - Various Locations

May 5, 2014

The City of Lincoln has awarded a contract for sidewalk repair at various locations north of "A" Street from 8th Street to the east city limits, and in the area from South 9th Street to South 27th Street between Nebraska Highway 2 and "A" Street. The contract for this work has been awarded to Vogtscapes Inc. of Lincoln, Nebraska.

The contractor is expected to start work in association with this contract the week of May 5, 2014. The repair work will involve removal and replacement of marked sections of sidewalk. There will be some inconvenience to residents in this area as sidewalk sections are removed and replaced and sidewalk locations are closed and barricaded to complete this work. Driveways may also be closed for short durations to complete work on sidewalk through the drive.

We request the patience and cooperation of residents in this area as the contractor progresses with this work. If you have a sprinkler system, it is advisable that you mark the location of the sprinkler lines and heads. It is the City's policy that sprinkler systems are a private improvement located in the public right-of-way. The Public Works and Utilities Department will not accept responsibility for repair of sprinkler systems which are located adjacent to the sidewalk.

This project is funded through Certificates of Participation issued by the Lincoln City Council. The Public Works and Utilities Department will administer this contract. Speece Lewis Engineers will provide project management and inspection as the contractor progresses with the sidewalk repair work If you have questions, please contact one of the people listed below.
