Stormwater Drainage and Water Quality Improvement Projects
Projects Under Construction
27th Street Pavement Repair Project
Construction will include repairing or removing and replacing deteriorated concrete panels, joints and curbs; and sealing joints and cracks. Other work includes removing and replacing damaged storm sewer inlet tops, curb ramps that do not meet Federal and local standards, and reconstruction of traffic signal elements impacted by the work.
NW 48th from W Vine to W Adams
Construction on NW 48th Street between West Vine Street and West Adams Street is scheduled to begin the week of March 30, 2015. Currently a two-lane roadway, NW 48th Street will be reconstructed as a four-lane divided road between West Holdrege Street and West Adams Street.
56th from Old Cheney to Shadow Pines
The roadway is designed as a 4-lane paved section with turn lanes and a raised median.
70th from Van Dorn to Eastborough - Pavement Repair Project
This project includes pavement repair, the reconstruction of pedestrian curb ramps that do not meet current federal and local standards, and the replacement of a pedestrian crossing signal at 70th Street and Lincolnshire Road.
Lincoln Children's Zoo Water Quality and Educational Project
The purpose of this project is to reduce runoff and promote infiltration at the Lincoln Children's Zoo site in order to reduce pollution flowing into Antelope Creek, and also to educate the public about water quality.
"P" St. Streetscape Project
The City of Lincoln Public Works Department is working with the Urban Development Department on the completion of the next phase of the "P" Street Streetscape Project. This project is a part of the greater Downtown Lincoln Master Plan and continues to build on the growth and redevelopment taking place in the Downtown area.
Superior from I-180 to 27th - Pavement Repair Project
Construction will include repairing or removing and replacing deteriorated concrete panels, joints and curbs; and sealing joints and cracks. Other work includes removing and replacing damaged storm sewer inlet tops, curb ramps that do not meet Federal and local standards, and replacement of traffic signal elements impacted by the work.
Vine from 27th to 48th - Resurfacing Project
The existing pavement will be milled and overlaid with new asphalt. The concrete base, curb, and medians will be repaired as necessary. Sidewalk curb ramps will be reconstructed to meet ADA requirements at all intersections. The intersections of 33rd Street, 45th Street, and 48th Street will be partially reconstructed and will require short-term road closures with detours to through traffic while the work occurs.
Stormwater Improvement Bond Issues
Stormwater improvement bond issues provide for design and construction of urban storm drainage projects, flood reduction projects, stream rehabilitation and waterway work, design and construction of master planned basin projects, water quality projects incorporating best management practices, and preliminary engineering for basin master plans to determine future projects. These improvements reduce stormwater runoff and flooding if major rains occur, reduce flooding impacts from major stream channels, prevent or repair degraded stream channels, and improve water quality.
