Beginning at 8 a.m. Wednesday, August 14, the southbound lanes of North 14th Street will be closed from Turtle Creek Road/Fletcher Avenue to Morton Street for the closure of a manhole that is no longer needed. The lanes will be open for the weekend of August 17 and 18 and then closed again Monday, August 19 through Friday, August 30 for pavement repair and replacement to address settlement and extend the life of the street. The sidewalk on the west side of that section of North 14th Street will also be closed.
Digital signs will alert traffic to upcoming work and lane closures. Drivers are encouraged to use Fletcher Avenue, 27th Street and Superior Street.
Motorists are reminded to exercise caution around work zones. Lincoln Transportation and Utilities appreciates the public’s patience during this repair.
