Lincoln on the Move is investing in improvements to approximately a half-mile of 27th Street from Coronado Drive to Old Cheney Road. These improvements may include a mill and overlay, pavement repair, public utility adjustments, inlet top and curb repairs or replacement. Additional work with other funding sources may include upgrades to the existing curb ramps to comply with the Federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.
This project is programmed as a part of the commitment to voters to invest significant sales tax funds into improvement of existing streets. The project will be funded jointly from the Highway Allocation Funds (aka-Gas Tax) and ¼ cent sales tax for streets in accordance with ballot language.
Design has begun and should finish up and be ready for bid in early Fall 2022. Construction is anticipated to begin in the 2023 construction season.
Access During Construction
The project will require lane closures during construction. Sidewalk closures will be necessary to replace curb ramps, however, one direction of sidewalk will remain open at all times.
