Project Summary

Lincoln on the Move is investing in improvements to approximately a half-mile of 27th Street from Coronado Drive to Old Cheney Road.

Project Location

Funding Details

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.


Construction is expected to begin in the 2023 construction season.

Access During Construction

On 27th Street south of Old Cheney Road, the contractor will be required to maintain one lane of traffic in each direction during construction, with the exception of a three week period where there will be a total closure at Old Cheney Road. Prior to the total closure there will be message boards notifying motorist of the upcoming closure. During the partial closures, left turns may be limited and require an alternate route into the neighborhoods.

Sidewalk closures will be necessary to replace curb ramps, however, one direction of sidewalk will remain open at all times.
