Additional Block Closed Downtown

Celebrate Lincoln and water main project creating congestion

City officials have closed an additional block of "N" Street due to congestion at 14th and "N."

The Celebrate Lincoln festival has already closed "N" from 12th to 14th streets. "N" Street is now closed from just east of 14th to just west of Centennial Mall. The intersection of 14th and "N" will remain open. Traffic signal timing in the area also is being adjusted.

Traffic on 14th between "N" and "P" is down to one lane due to a water main project, contributing to the congestion at 14th and "N."

Other closures are 13th Street from "M" to "O" for Celebrate Lincoln and Centennial Mall from "M" to "N" for the mall improvement project. Work on other downtown street resurfacing projects has been temporarily suspended.

Those headed to Celebrate Lincoln from the east are advised to use "O" or "L" streets.
