April 20, 2015
The City of Lincoln has begun work to replace the existing water main along Lynn Street, "W" Street, 23rd Street, and 26th Street. The water main will be replaced on Lynn Street from 23rd Street to 25th Street; "W" Street from 22nd Street to 26th Street; 23rd Street from Vine Street to "W" Street; and 26th Street from Vine Street to "W" Street. Water services will be transferred to the new main on 25th Street from Lynn Street to "W" Street. Work will be completed in phases per the following tentative schedule (weather permitting):
- May 1 – May 10: 22nd Street & "W" Street; 25th Street & "W" Street; 25th Street & Lynn Street
- May 10 – August 31: "W" Street from 22nd Street to 26th Street; Lynn Street from 23rd Street to 25th Street; 23rd Street from "W" Street to Vine Street; 26th Street from "W" Street to Vine Street.
- September 1 – September 17: Sod placement throughout entire project limits
Upon completion of the installation and chlorination of all water mains, the contractor will change over water service lines to the new water main per the above tentative schedule.
K2 Construction will be the contractor. They will perform the work under total street closures with the road open to local traffic only via side streets. During the construction operations, access to driveways may be restricted at times. The City and the contractor will work with local residences and businesses regarding their access during construction. Sprinkler systems will be avoided, where possible, and functioning systems will be repaired if they are impacted by the construction.
