Lincoln Street Improvements – Papillion, NE
The Lincoln Street Improvement project paved the way for construction access to Papillion Landing, a new community center, field house, and athletic fields. It also improved a major east-west arterial connecting City services in the east with expanding neighborhoods in the west.
A 2016 corridor study recommended improving roadway capacity and safety as well as roundabouts at the two entrance intersections, new sidewalks to the south, and a 10-foot multi-use trail on the north side.
Roadway improvements began just west of the 84th Street intersection and ended east of the Fort Street intersection where the existing road widens before a bridge. Removing the existing two-lane roadway in its entirety made way for constructing the replacement roadway section. The new section is a 34-foot wide, 3-lane crowned pavement section with two 11.5-foot wide outside thru-lanes and an 11-foot center turn lane. Roundabout intersections were placed at Cheyenne Drive and Frontier Drive in conjunction with entrances planned to the new community center and athletic fields in the City Park expansion area. Also, new pedestrian sidewalks and a bike path provided continuity of access to the existing pedestrian path/trail systems.
- 9’ x 6’ x 85’ reinforced concrete box culvert (Flex-A-Mat installed at the transition between the culvert apron and the existing channel provides a more maintainable/aesthetic channel protection measure next to the community center.)
- 2,600 lineal feet of new storm sewer pipe
- 34 new roadway curb inlets
