LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Portions of two streets will temporarily close Sunday, Nov. 20, for Lincoln Electric System (LES) utility work. LES will remove overhead power lines and utility poles. The closures are as follows:

  • South 48th Street from Sumner to Glade streets – 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • South Street from South 47th to South 49th streets – 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Access to homes and businesses will not be allowed in these areas until the work is complete. The sidewalk on the east side of South 48th Street will be closed.
