Construction on North 56th Street from Vine to Adams streets begins Monday, May 21 and will continue through August. North and southbound traffic will be maintained in the early stages of the project. Temporary lane closures and pedestrian detours are expected.
Resurfacing work will begin by August. At that time, phased lane closures will maintain traffic in at least one direction to ensure access to businesses, residences and schools. Intersection work at Holdrege Street and Leighton Avenue will require full or partial closures between rush hours.
Message signs will provide advanced notification of intersection and lane closures. The street is scheduled to open in August, with seeding and final cleanup activities continuing into September.
The project includes repairing and sealing pothole-causing cracks, resurfacing and upgrading sidewalk ramps to ADA standards.
