Lincoln on the Move

The City of Lincoln is investing in streets to ensure a better tomorrow. This community effort improves the streets we drive on and our quality of life. The investments also support job creation, public safety, education, healthcare, sustainability, and economic growth. These important road projects literally lay the infrastructure to help our community thrive.

Honestly, Streets are for Everyone

Our vast network of streets allows all of us the mobility to work, school, and play. Driving commerce through delivery of goods and welcoming thousands of visitors to our capital city provides a tremendous opportunity for Lincoln. Our neighborhood streets provide the links to our community, our family, and friends.
