The list of street improvement projects recommended by the Advisory Committee for Transportation (ACT) is now available online at streets.lincoln.ne.gov.
The City plans to invest 73.5 percent of the new funds on improving existing streets. Three arterial street rehabilitation projects are on the list: 40th Street from Highway 2 to Clifford; 48th Street from Highway 2 to Pioneers; and 70th Street from Colfax to Havelock. Residential street rehabilitation projects were recommended for the Havelock, Zeman Elementary, Southwood and McPhee Elementary neighborhoods. 25 percent of the funding will be invested on growth projects, and 1.5 percent will be invested on the RTSD’s 33rd and Cornhusker project.
Two public hearings on the recommendations are coming up as the Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Commission and the Lincoln City Council consider amendments to the City’s Capital Improvement Program:
The meetings are in the Council Chambers at the County-City Building, 555 S. 10th Street.
The ACT is a 14-member citizen group appointed by Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird to help prioritize the street improvement and construction projects to be undertaken over the next six years using the new “Lincoln on the Move” funds approved by voters this past spring.
