104th and Holdrege - Intersection Improvements

Project Summary

This project improved the Holdrege Street and North 104th Street Intersection with construction of a new roundabout.

As a part of the City’s commitment in the Waterford Estates - N. 98th & Holdrege annexation agreement of May 2006, this project will promote private sector investment into the community by helping serve 665 approved additional dwelling units and another 700 potential future units and additional commercial space through improving safety and capacity of the transportation system.

Project Location

Funding Details

This project was approved April 20, 2020 to receive a portion of the 25% of the revenues reserved for construction of new non-residential streets to promote private sector investment after receiving a recommendation from the Advisory Committee on Transportation.

The City already has several annexation agreements with developers regarding new streets in “growth” areas. However, many of these street projects could not get underway due to a lack of funding. The portion of the sales tax for new street construction to promote private sector investment will help these projects move forward.


Construction took place in 2022. The work was done concurrently with a Lincoln Water System water main expansion project to minimize inconvenience for drivers.

Access During Construction

Holdrege Street remains closed to through traffic during water main construction. The recommended detour is North 84th Street to “O” Street to North 148th Street. Access to homes will be maintained throughout the work. Digital signs will alert traffic to upcoming work and closures. Travelers are encouraged to follow the detour or seek an alternate route and exercise caution around the work zone. Lincoln Transportation and Utilities appreciates the public’s patience during this work.
