84th Street Lane Closures Begin October 5

Beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, October 5, lanes on 84th Street between Holdrege Street and Pinedale Avenue will close for Lincoln Electric System (LES) to move overhead power lines underground. Portions of the sidewalks along 84th Street and the 84th Street Trail will close periodically during this work. Access to homes and businesses will be maintained. This project is scheduled to be completed in March 2021.
