The public is invited to an open house Thursday, April 6 for two separate improvement projects: one on 27th Street from Holdrege Street to Fletcher Avenue and the other on Superior Street from 27th Street to Cornhusker Highway. The meeting is from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Salvation Army Community Center, 2625 Potter Street. The main entrance and parking lot are on the north side of the Community Center. No formal presentation is planned. Those attending will be able to discuss the construction schedule and project phasing with representatives from TCW Construction, Olsson Associates and the City. A Vietnamese translator will be available at the meeting.
Work on both projects is scheduled to begin April 17 and be completed by mid-November. The project includes repairing or replacing deteriorated concrete panels and curbs, sealing joints and cracks and replacing asphalt areas with concrete. Other work includes replacing damaged storm drainage inlet tops, utility adjustments and restoration of traffic signal elements impacted by the work.
The work on Superior and 27th streets will be completed under lane closures with a minimum of one lane of traffic open in each direction. Turn lanes may be temporarily closed throughout the project. Access will be maintained to businesses but may be limited at times. Pedestrians and bicyclists may be directed to alternate crossings while repairs are made in the crosswalks. The Public Works and Utilities Department appreciates the public's patience during these projects.
