Dodge Street restrictions begin Sunday night

City of Omaha traffic engineers say that starting at 10 p.m. Sunday, Dodge Street, from 29th Street to 52nd Street, will be restricted to head-to-head traffic for one lane eastbound and one lane westbound as a major Dodge Street resurfacing project gets under way.

The restriction is due to milling and resurfacing work by Omni Construction. And the restrictions will remain in place for eight weeks while the resurfacing and utility adjustments are completed for the Dodge Street project.

Engineers also said:

— A northbound lane of 72nd Street, from Dodge Street to Cass Street, is closed. The closing is due to private water service repair by Southside Plumbing and it will be in effect for four to five days.

— A northbound lane of Abbott Drive, from east Fort Street to east Hartman Avenue, is closed. The closing is due to utility work by MUD and it will be in effect for three to four days.

— A northbound curb lane of 120th Street, from Blondo Street to Dodge Street, is restricted. The restriction is due to utility work by Heimes Construction and it will be in effect for two weeks.

And beginning Monday at 9 a.m.:

— Maple Street, from 88th Street to 90th Street, will have one lane closed for westbound traffic. The restriction is due to water-service connection by Kersten Construction and it will be in effect for one week.

— 33rd Street, from L Street to Ed Babe Gomez Avenue, will have the southbound lane restricted. The restriction is due to utility work by MUD and it will be in effect for two to three days.

— Blondo Street, from 145th Street to Eldorado Drive, will be restricted. The restriction is due to utility work by OPPD and it will be in effect until 4 p.m.

— Various lane restrictions for eastbound and westbound traffic will be enforced at 143rd Street and FNB Parkway. The restrictions are due to driveway and median construction by Kiewit Building Group and they will be in effect for five days.
