New construction projects in Lincoln this month may slow down daily commutes.

The City of Lincoln announced an improvement project on Superior Street will start Monday June 9.

"I gotta wake up probably about 20 minutes earlier just so I can get through all the traffic in the mornings," Brandon Bell of Lincoln said.

Work on specific intersections may cause congestion during peak morning and afternoon hours.

"If they gotta fix the road, they gotta fix the road," Akim Riek of Lincoln said.

Intersection repairs will take place at 21st and 24th and Superior, 27th and Bair Avenue, and 27th and King Lane. Besides lane closures, drivers on adjoining streets won't be able to turn left onto Superior.

The finished construction, slated for late August, will provide drivers with more U-turn locations. This is on top of projects currently slowing down parts of O Street and Cornhusker Highway.

Connie Steller takes Cornhusker to work every day, and says she's ready for the work to be finished. The asphalt has been torn up from North 11th to North 20th for about two weeks.

"It kinda feels like you're sliding around a little bit more which I kinda think is a little bit dangerous," Steller said.

The Public Works Dept. says the re-paving on Cornhusker will be finished by the end of June. That work is being done overnight, but still expect slower speeds and lane closures during the day.

The Superior Street project will be paid for with gas and wheel taxes.
