Portion of N. 27th St. to close Tuesday

Starting at 8 a.m., Tuesday, July 16th, southbound N. 27th St. between Old Dairy Rd. and Fairfield St. will be reduced to one lane for pavement improvements.

Right turns from southbound 27th St. will not be allowed.

Lanes on Fairfield St. will be moved south to allow for construction.

The project is expected to be done sometime in August.

The bus stop at N. 27th and Fairfield St. will be closed during this project.

Riders are advised to use the stop at the Center for People in Need at 3901 N. 27th St., or on the south side of Cornhusker Hwy.

The pedestrian and cycling trail at N. 27th and Fairfield St. will be closed as well.

City officials say the project is designed to improve traffic flow and increase safety by adding a right-turn lane from N. 27th St. to Fairfield St.

The project also adds ADA-accessible sidewalks with curb ramps, a new pedestrian-activated crossing signal and a median cut-through for the pedestrian and cycling trail across 27th St.

Drivers are urged to follow lane closure signs and use caution around construction crews.
