Stormwater Drainage and Water Quality Improvement Projects
Projects Under Construction
14th from Sumner to South - Water Main Replacement
The water main along 14th Street from Sumner to South will be replaced.
2015 Water Main Replacements
23rd and Lynn Area Water Main Replacement Project
The water main will be replaced on Lynn from 23rd to 25th; "W" from 22nd to 26th; 23rd from Vine to "W"; and 26th from Vine to "W." Water services will be transferred to the new main on 25th from Lynn to "W."
27th and "O" Intersection Reconstruction
This project will reconstruct the intersection of 27th and "O" Streets. Beginning the week of June 7, the following streets will be closed for an estimated 18 days: "O" Street/Highway 34 from 25th to 29th streets; 27th Street from "N" Street to the alley just north of "O" Street/Highway 34.
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.
49th and Rentworth Storm Drain Improvements
This project includes the installation of additional storm sewer pipe and inlets. These additions will improve drainage by allowing more water to be removed from the street, which will reduce ponding and street flooding.
56th from Old Cheney to Shadow Pines
The roadway is designed as a 4-lane paved section with turn lanes and a raised median. Construction is scheduled to begin on Monday, April 20, 2015, weather permitting.
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. Construction is scheduled to begin the week of June 22, 2015.
Gladstone from 35th to 37th
Work will begin at the north end of the project on the newly established 36th Street approximately 600 feet north of the centerline of Gladstone Street. Construction work on Gladstone Street will begin at the existing concrete return at 35th Street and extend to the east side of the driveway entrance into the homes on the south side of the street.
Hwy 2 / 55W Paving Repairs
For the next several weeks, Public Works and the Nebraska Department of Roads will be focusing repair efforts on Hwy 2 and 55W (Warlick Blvd & S. 14th St). We will provide updates on temporary lane closures associated with this work each afternoon.
West "O" from NW 28th to 3rd - Pavement Repair Project
Construction will include repairing or removing and replacing deteriorated concrete panels, joints and curbs; and sealing cracks. Other work includes removing and replacing damaged storm sewer inlet tops, curb ramps that do not meet Federal and local standards, and reconstructing impacted traffic signal elements. Work is scheduled to begin the week of July 13, 2015.
Old Cheney from 70th to 82nd
Because of rising traffic volumes, Old Cheney's existing two-lane rural street will be upgraded to a four-lane urban street with left turn lanes, curbs and gutters.
Roper Park Stream Stability Project
This project will stabilize portions of the eroding stream banks along Lynn Creek in Roper Park southwest of Superior Street and I-180.
Sheridan Penny Bridges
This bridge replacement project will take place on Sheridan Boulevard just west of 33rd Street. The side-by-side bridges were built in 1934 to carry Sheridan Boulevard traffic over the railroad. Construction is set to begin May 4, weather permitting.
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.
