Beginning Monday, July 16, 8th Street, between “O” and “S” streets will close for repairs. Pedestrian access to businesses will be maintained. The work continues the last phase of improvements planned in the Haymarket and is expected to continue through August. Digital message signs will continue to alert drivers to additional street closures as work progresses.
The project includes resurfacing portions of 8th, “P”, “Q”, “R” and “S” streets; installing ADA-accessible sidewalk ramps, curbs and sidewalks; and enhancing aesthetics on 24 street corners between 7th and 9th streets. The Lincoln Haymarket Development Corporation provided input on the plans and schedule, which was adjusted to accommodate special events.
