Lincoln Transportation and Utilities are planning several road projects throughout the city, including pavement repair, utility work, and asphalt rejuvenation.
The asphalt rejuvenation project is scheduled to be complete Monday, July 15, depending on the weather. Digital message signs will alert drivers to upcoming work and lane closures. The project schedule is available at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: sealing).
Streets will be treated in the following order:
Tuesday, July 9
Wednesday, July 10
Thursday, July 11
Friday, July 12
Monday, July 15
The rejuvenation project is intended to stabilize and preserve the asphalt and extend the life of the driving surface. The process requires closure of the street for two to three hours while liquid rejuvenator is applied. After two hours, sand is applied, and the street is reopened, but motorists are urged to drive slowly.
Motorists should not drive on the streets until they have reopened to avoid tracking and getting the liquid rejuvenator on vehicles, as it can be difficult to remove from tires and shoes. Dry conditions are necessary for successful application, making the project schedule heavily dependent on the weather.
Beginning at 8 a.m., Monday, July 15, the southbound lanes on North 27th Street, between Vine and “T” streets will be closed through Friday, July 19, for utility work. Black Hills Energy will be removing abandoned gas lines. Digital signs will alert traffic to upcoming work and lane closures. Drivers are encouraged to seek an alternate route.
Beginning at 7 p.m., Monday, July 15, portions of South 84th Street between Kathy Lane and Pioneers Boulevard will be closed for pavement repair. Alternating northbound lane closures will occur between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. through July 29. Only one lane will be closed at a time at night and all lanes will remain open during the day. Digital signs will alert traffic to upcoming work and lane closures.
Drivers are reminded to exercise caution around work zones. Lincoln Transportation and Utilities appreciates the public’s patience during this repair.
