Starting Monday, July 23, both eastbound lanes on Superior Street between West Highlands Boulevard and North 1st Street will close for repairs to the bridge over I-80. The work is expected to take about two weeks to complete, and the project will then move to the westbound lanes. The entire project is expected to be completed in mid-August. Drivers are encouraged to seek alternate routes. Digital messages boards will alert drivers to changes.
The project includes repairing the joints where the bridge meets the rest of the street and replacing cracked pavement. The repair reduces the risk of damage due to pavement expansion during hot weather. Lincoln residents are reminded to exercise caution around construction crews.
