Portion of South 84th Street to Close April 19

Published on April 15, 2021

Beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, April 19, South 84th Street between Amber Hill and Dunrovin roads will be closed for work on the railroad crossing.  The sidewalk in this area will also be closed.  Access to properties in this area will be maintained.  The recommended detour is Highway 2 to South 91st Street to Yankee Hill Road.  This work is scheduled to be completed by May 21.

The project is designed to improve railroad crossing safety by widening South 84th Street to accommodate the installation of a raised center median on both sides of the crossing.  Sidewalks at the crossing will also be reconstructed to meet Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.

Digital signs will alert traffic to the upcoming work and closures.  Motorists are encouraged to use the detour or seek an alternate route and are reminded to exercise caution around work zones.  Lincoln Transportation and Utilities (LTU) appreciates the public’s patience during this project.  LTU project dates and times are subject to change due to weather and unforeseen circumstances.

For more information about this project, visit lincoln.ne.gov (search 84th) or contact Randy Saathoff, LTU, at 402-440-6067 or rsaathoff@lincoln.ne.gov.  Current information on street closures is available at lincoln.ne.gov/closures or through the Waze mobile app.
