Portion of West "A" Street to Close Wednesday

Beginning at 8 a.m. Wednesday, February 5, eastbound West "A" Street between Southwest 14th Street and South Coddington Avenue will be closed for sanitary sewer installation. There will be no side street access from the south onto West "A" Street. The sidewalk on the south side of West "A" Street will also be closed. This work is scheduled to be completed by Friday, April 3. Digital signs will alert travelers to upcoming work and closures. Travelers should seek alternate routes. Access to homes and businesses will be maintained.

This project is the first phase of the Middle Creek Sewer Project. Crews will use a trenchless process called "pipe bursting" that pulls new, larger diameter pipe through the existing pipe. The installation of larger sanitary sewer lines will provide additional capacity for growth in the area.

Drivers are reminded to exercise caution around work zones. Lincoln Transportation and Utilities (LTU) appreciate the public's patience during this project.

For more information on the West "A" Street Improvement Project, visit or contact LTU representatives Shane Dostal (402-525-7852, or Brian Kramer (402-441-7987, Current information on street closures is available at (keyword: closures) or through the Waze mobile app.
