84th and Havelock Improvement Project

Updated June 20, 2019

Work began Monday, November 5, 2018 on a roadway improvement project in the area of 84th and Havelock Avenue. The new design of the intersection will better accommodate increasing traffic volume due to residential growth and Lancaster Event Center programming.

Scope of Work

Construction on the west leg of 84th Street and Havelock Avenue includes mill and overlay of Havelock between 73rd and 84th streets and installation of new concrete, storm drainage and street lighting.

Work on Havelock east of 84th Street will include widening in front of the Lancaster Event Center, concrete paving, storm drainage installation and street lighting.

Intersection improvements at 84th and Havelock will include traffic signal reconstruction and storm drainage and water main installation. In addition to this work, northbound to eastbound and southbound to westbound right-turn lanes will be constructed along 84th Street. The southbound to eastbound left-turn lane on 84th Street will be lengthened as well. These modifications are being completed to increase safety and capacity along 84th Street.

Access During Construction

Construction on the east and west legs of the project will be completed under a full road closure of Havelock Avenue. Eastbound traffic will be detoured to Cornhusker Highway via 70th Street and westbound traffic will be detoured to Holdrege Street via 112th Street. 84th Street will remain open in both directions throughout the project. The traffic signal at the intersection of 84th and Havelock will be disabled Wednesday, December 19 through July 2019. A temporary signal has been installed at Lancaster Event Center’s main driveway entrance, “Gate 1” on 84th Street.

Lancaster Event Center Access:
Gate 1 on North 84th Street will remain open throughout construction and will use a temporary traffic signal. Currently, the only access and exit to LEC is Gate 1 on North 84th Street. LEC Gate 4 is only available for emergency access to east Havelock Avenue if necessary.
All visitors are urged to exercise caution around the work area, and follow the directions of Lincoln Police and/or LEC parking attendants for the quickest and safest exit from the facility.
