Several Street Closures to Begin Monday

Published on September 09, 2021

Portions of three Lincoln streets are scheduled to close Monday, September 13: 

South Folsom:
South Folsom Street between West Old Cheney Road and West Cardwell Ridge Drive will be closed for a Lincoln on the Move growth project. The recommended detour route is Old Cheney Road to Highway 77 to West Denton Road. This project is scheduled to open to traffic by December 31, with final completion in spring 2022.

The project includes new pavement with a raised median; a new roundabout at South Folsom Street and West Palm Canyon Drive; new storm sewer; new sidewalks with curb ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities compliance; and utility work to serve the increasing development in this area.

Lincoln on the Move is a six-year street investment focused on enhancing Lincoln’s street infrastructure that will dedicate an additional $78 million to street projects in Lincoln through 2025.
