The purpose of this project is to preserve the transportation asset, improve the reliability of Lincoln’s transportation system, and ensure the mobility of the traveling public. The need for this proposed project is based on the condition of the existing pavement.
Scope of Work
This proposed project would rehabilitate the pavement along 56th Street between Spruce and Van Dorn streets to improve roadway conditions as necessitated by the current pavement age and condition.
Right of Way
The proposed project would require the acquisition of additional property rights, which could include new right-of-way (ROW), control of access (CA), permanent easements (PE), and/or temporary easements (TE). The majority of additional property rights will be Temporary Easements for sidewalk ramp reconstruction.
This project is federally funded.
Design began in fall of 2020. Construction is tentatively planned to take place in 2025, however, LTU will be working with NDOT and FHWA to accelerate the schedule.
Access During Construction
Construction will be phased for the duration of the project. Access to individual properties will be maintained. The traveling public is encouraged to find alternative routes and to use the WAZE app for assistance.
