Lincoln is doing more to preserve and maintain our streets. As we grow, keeping pace with the needs of both our existing and new streets is vital. Now is the time to invest more in the transportation system to keep Lincoln on the move.
Improving Our Streets
Lincoln on the Move is currently in the second year of a six-year initiative anticipated to provide $78 million of street improvements across the community through 2025. Of that total, 73.5 percent, or what we estimate will be more than $57 million, will be used on projects to repair and improve existing neighborhood and arterial streets.
The City of Lincoln is investing in streets to ensure a better tomorrow. This community effort improves the streets we drive on and our quality of life. The investments also support job creation, public safety, education, healthcare, sustainability, and economic growth. These important road projects literally lay the infrastructure to help our community thrive.
The delivery of projects to fix our streets with this new revenue is a follow up to initiatives conducted by a Citizens’ Coalition and the commitment to implement recommendations.
Honestly, Streets are for Everyone
Our vast network of streets allows all of us the mobility to work, school, and play. Driving commerce through delivery of goods and welcoming thousands of visitors to our capital city provides a tremendous opportunity for Lincoln. In addition, our neighborhood streets provide the links to our community, our family, and friends. This website showcases the progress being made on the quarter-cent sales tax initiative, and the value of our streets – for all of us!
