South Folsom and North 27 Streets Now Open

South Folsom Street, between West South Street and Pioneers Boulevard, and North 27th Street, between Old Dairy Road and Cornhusker Highway, are now open. Temporary turn-lane closures may occur on North 27th Street for sprinkler and sodding work.

South Folsom Street had been closed since September 25 as part of the arterial streets rehabilitation program. This program improves and extends the life of the street by milling the existing surface and overlaying new asphalt. The project also included joint sealing and new pavement markings.

North 27th Street has had periodic street and lane closures since April 15 for a safety improvement project. This project includes dedicated right-turn lanes off of North 27th Street at Fairfield Street, Cather Road, and the commercial center access drive south of Knox Street. Pedestrian safety improvements were made where the trail crosses North 27th Street and include new ADA accessible sidewalks with curb ramps and a new pedestrian-activated crossing signal with a median cut-through. The project also includes new traffic signals at Old Dairy Road and Knox Street.

Lincoln Transportation and Utilities (LTU) thanks the public for their patience during these projects.
