System Preservation

This program component focuses on preservation of transportation system assets owned, maintained, and operated by Lincoln Transportation. This funding supports the administration's vision of a Strong and Resilient City.   The activities include program management, project development, and delivery of infrastructure and products for the rehabilitation and replacement of streets, intersections, traffic signals, bridges, structures, signing, marking, and city transportation facilities. The project efforts include concrete repairs, asphalt mill and overlay, surface treatments, signal structures and equipment replacement, bridge/structure work, facility rehab and improvements, and other transportation system preservation and rehabilitation efforts.

Funding Information

Transportation System Preservation is funded by the Residential Rehabilitation portion of the Street Improvement Vehicle Tax (aka - Wheel Tax); Highway Allocations Funds received from the State of Nebraska (consists of Motor Fuel Taxes, Registrations, Sales Tax, and Build Nebraska Act); Federal Aid in the form of Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBGP) funds received through the Lincoln / Lancaster County Metropolitan Planning Organization competitive programming and selection process, and General Revenues from the City’s collection of property tax and sales tax.

In April 2019, the City of Lincoln voters approved a six-year, ¼ cent sales tax to be used for street improvements and construction (aka – Lincoln on the Move funding). The ballot language allows up to 73.5% to be apportioned to repair and rehabilitate existing street infrastructure. The proposed allocation represents 73.5% of the anticipated Lincoln on the Move (LOTM) revenue. In the out years, the vast majority of the new revenue will continue to be allocated for street repair and rehab, but the exact percentage may be subject to variation based on the project recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Transportation (ACT) and public input. The collection of this revenue will end October 1, 2025 which is why the amount is reduced in the last year of this CIP.

"Unknown" funding (UNKN) is that amount identified by the Lincoln on the Move Citizen's Transportation Coalition that remains unfunded, yet necessary to accomplish the goals of the Community’s Long-Range Transportation Plan and associated priority of preserving the existing transportation system.
