Work to Start on Superior Street Bridge Over Salt Creek

Work is scheduled to begin Monday, March 22 on the Superior Street Bridge project. The project includes repair of the deck of the bridge over Salt Creek just west of N. 40th Street and is scheduled to take about two months.

The first phase will include the removal of medians and structural work to move traffic from four lanes to two lanes on Superior at 40th and 33rd streets. This will allow two-way traffic to continue on either the north or south half of Superior during the project. Left turns will not be permitted at the intersection of 40th and Superior streets. Those wishing to travel west on Superior can make left turns at 44th Street.

The Superior Street Bridge deck repair is the first of the federal stimulus-funded street projects to begin in Lincoln. In February 2009, the City was awarded about $9.3 million in stimulus funding for streets and roads. Mayor Beutler added $6.9 million in local street funds for a combined roads package of about $16.2 million, which will cover about 20 miles of major street rehabilitation.
