"N" Street from 20th to 21st streets will close Monday, January 12 for work on a joint City of Lincoln - Lincoln Electric System (LES) project. The LES portion of the project is the construction of a duct bank for electrical service lines from the new LES substation at 21st and "N" streets. The new substation will replace the substation at 19th and "Q" streets, which will be removed this summer. When the LES portion is completed, work will begin on the City's "N" Street Bikeway project.
As part of the duct bank project, the LES contractor will also do the street mill and overlay work for the City. The City will then reimburse LES for the cost of the street work. The City and LES have coordinated the projects to reduce the amount of time needed for "N" Street closures. "N" Street is expected to be closed until February 12.
