Pine Lake from 61st to Highway 2 Widening and Safety Improvement Project

The City of Lincoln began the Pine Lake Road widening and safety improvement project in March 2018. This project was necessary to increase the capacity of the roadway as a part of the increasing development in southeast Lincoln.

One lane of travel in each direction was opened to traffic on December 24, 2019. All lanes of travel were opened in each direction on Pine Lake Road on January 30, 2020.
