The Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning and Urban Development Departments, with the Downtown Lincoln Association, have been working on design plans for renovating downtown Lincoln’s major street corridors. The goal of the project is to improve the attractiveness, safety, connectivity and overall vibrancy of these important connections to and through downtown.

Renovation of these corridors was identified in the Downtown Master Plan published in 2018 as an opportunity to enhance the existing public spaces and provide additional destinations for all people. The City is also hopeful that these improvements will serve to leverage additional private reinvestment along and around the improved streets. The plan for renovation is anticipated to be complete this summer with construction beginning in some areas as early as this fall.
