Public Invited to Open House on Old Cheney Road Improvements

The public is invited to an open house Tuesday, March 20 on improvements to Old Cheney Road from 70th to 82nd streets. The City of Lincoln and Alfred Benesch & Company will host the open house from 5 to 7 p.m. at Lincoln Christian School, 5801 South 84th Street.

Because of rising traffic volumes, the existing two-lane, rural street will be upgraded to an urban four-lane roadway with curbs and gutters and left-turn lanes. Construction is scheduled to begin early 2014. The project also includes:

Those attending should park on the east side of the school and use the northeast entrance. Directional signs will be posted. The meeting will take place in the elementary activities room.

The open house will provide an opportunity for the planning team to share and obtain information on current plans for the project. At the open house, attendees may informally view information stations and the planning concepts. Attendees will have an opportunity to discuss their questions and concerns with the project team and are invited to offer their comments regarding the plans.
