Lincoln on the Move is investing in improvements to approximately one-third of a mile of 48th Street from Old Cheney Road to Nebraska Parkway. These improvements will include pavement repair, removal and replacement of pavement, base repairs, public utility adjustments, inlet top, median, and curb repairs or replacement. Additional work with other funding sources includes 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
A full closure of 48th Street will be required during construction. The traveling public is encouraged to find alternative routes and to use the WAZE app for assistance.
Access to sidewalks may be restricted during sidewalk curb ramp construction. One sidewalk path will remain open at all times during construction.
