[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 Street
  • Thursday -- milling on Kickapoo (Clinton to Pekin) and on McLean (Broadway to
  • Pulaski)
  • Friday -- base repair, utility adjustments, cleanup
  • No work Saturday, Sunday or Monday.
  • 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.
