Published on May 06, 2021

Lincoln on the Move projects continue

On Monday, May 10, the City will begin a two-phase Lincoln on the Move arterial street improvement project on Ninth Street between “A” and “R” streets. The schedule is as follows: 

  • Phase One will require occasional curb lane and sidewalk closures for curb and ramp reconstruction to comply with Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.
  • Phase Two will have lane closures and traffic diversions for repairs, resurfacing and pavement markings. The “N” Street Cycle Track will be closed at Ninth and “N” streets. The project will affect StarTran stops on the following routes: 25-Vine, 41-Havelock, 51-West A, 52-Gaslight, 54-Vet’s Hospital, 56-Sheridan, and the Downtown Trolley. 

Access to businesses and residences will be maintained whenever possible. Emergency access will be maintained at all times. This project is scheduled to be completed by September 3.

Digital signs will alert traffic to the upcoming work and closures. Drivers are reminded to exercise caution around work zones. Lincoln Transportation and Utilities (LTU) appreciates the public’s patience during these projects. LTU project dates and times are subject to change due to weather and unforeseen circumstances.

Lincoln on the Move is a six-year street investment focused on enhancing Lincoln’s street infrastructure. More than 50 street projects are expected to be completed through 2025.
