Portions of Adams & N streets to close Monday

By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) -- Adams Street from 40th to 42nd streets will close at 7 a.m. Monday, November 13 for replacement and expansion of a sanitary sewer line. It is scheduled to reopen by December 8. Neighborhood access will be maintained from the intersection of 42nd and Adams streets traveling west. All other drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes, including Cornhusker Highway and Huntington Avenue.

Drivers are reminded to exercise caution around construction crews. The Public Works and Utilities Department appreciates the public’s patience.

Adding extra capacity to the existing sanitary sewer line allows better flow to main lines of the system and reduces the risk of backup in extreme weather events. The project is funded by wastewater user fees as part of Lincoln Wastewater’s Capital Improvement Program.

For more information, contact Daran Brown, Lincoln Wastewater System, at 402-441-7961.

N Street between 9th and 10th streets will close at 7 a.m. Monday, November 13 to both automotive and bicycle traffic while Lincoln Electric System (LES) installs new underground electrical lines. It is expected to reopen by November 22. Drivers and bicyclists should seek alternate routes. Bicyclists may need to dismount and walk on a nearby sidewalk around the construction.

Lincoln residents are reminded to exercise caution around construction crews. The LES project supports electricity needs for planned development at 9th and “O” streets.

For project information, contact Darin Gourka, LES Project Engineer, at 402-467-7682 or Zach Slagle, LES Project Manager, at 402-416-3367. For information on City coordination, contact Greg Topil, Public Works and Utilities, at 402-416-5150.
