LDN -- Top Stories

Work at the new Casey's General Store in Lincoln is progressing nicely. This week the sod went in creating attractive landscaping, the sign is in place and is at ground level near the entrance, and the gas pumps are being installed. The new business located on Woodlawn Road, just east of the Lincoln Parkway, is expected to open around the 22nd of September.
