Tree Removal to Cause Temporary Street Closures This Week

Portions of two streets will be temporarily closed Thursday and Friday for tree removal. The schedule is as follows:

The sidewalks on both sides of the streets will also be closed. Digital signs will alert traffic to upcoming work and closures. Drivers are encouraged to seek alternate routes. Access to residences will be maintained.

The Community Forestry Division of the Parks and Recreation Department is removing trees on arterial streets that have been damaged by disease or vehicles. Travelers are reminded to exercise caution around work zones. Lincoln Transportation and Utilities (LTU) and Parks and Recreation appreciate the public's patience during this work.

For more information contact Shane Dostal at LTU (402-525-7852, sdostal@lincoln.ne.gov) or Lorri Grueber at Community Forestry (402-441-9461, lgrueber@lincoln.ne.gov). Current information on street closures is available at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: closures) or through the Waze mobile app.
