[JUNE 30, 2004]
If you are traveling to
downtown Lincoln, you may want to allow a few extra minutes for the
next couple of weeks. The downtown streets around the square are
getting a major facelift. City engineer Mark Mathon encourages
patience while work is being performed.
The new streets and some details such
as curbing and handicapped ramps are sure to make the temporary
inconvenience worthwhile when the project is completed.
Downtown street work schedule
- Wednesday -- milling on Pulaski
- Thursday -- milling on Kickapoo
(Clinton to Pekin) and on McLean (Broadway to
- Friday -- base repair, utility
- No work Saturday, Sunday or
- Week of July 5 -- base repair

The milling operations will entail
closing the street to parking and through traffic where the
operation is taking place. Through streets will remain open at
intersections. Base repair and utility adjustments will not require
streets to be blocked.
The next operation that will require
street closures will be paving. Traffic control for it will be done
in the same way as the milling. Crews will work on one street per
day and progress through the job.
