Re-opening of Lincoln Highway is in sight

This is the view today of Lincoln Highway between 6th and 7th Streets looking east. Workers are focused on the sidewalks.

 

By the end of next week, barring any unforeseen problem, Lincoln Highway in Nevada is expected to re-open.

Corey Merrigan, Nevada’s Downtown Construction Project Manager with Construct, Inc., said today, “We are going to try to finish concrete work on the sidewalks (along Lincoln Highway between 5th and 7th streets) this week.”

The last part of concrete work will likely be in the alley by the laundromat, he indicated.

“I plan to have stripers/painters here next Monday working on Lincoln Highway,” Merrigan said.

In earlier reports, Merrigan had hoped to have Lincoln Highway open by Oct. 1. That goal was pushed back when another contractor’s error resulted in a water main break and the tearing out and redoing of concrete between 6th and 7th streets on Lincoln Highway.

Looking at the work on Sixth Street, north of Lincoln Highway, Merrigan said On Track should be done with underground work on the block between Lincoln Highway and M Avenue today.

“We should be able to move in soon to start grading that block for paving,” he said. Merrigan has a goal of Nov. 1 to have at least the first block of 6th north of Lincoln Highway completely finished.
