Funding Details

This project was programmed as a part of the commitment to voters to invest significant sales tax funds into improvement of existing streets. The project was funded jointly from the Highway Allocation Funds (aka-Gas Tax) and ¼ cent sales tax for streets in accordance with ballot language. The programmed project scope was changed during design so the budgeted money that was Lincoln on the Move, $800,000 and Highway Allocation Funds, $200,000 was significantly more than needed. Including design and construction engineering, construction project costs were $412,295.

Schedule

Construction began June 15, 2020 and was completed ahead of schedule on July 3, 2020.
