Deadmans Run Approval

Deadmans Run Approval

August 27, 2018

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has approved a Section 205 feasibility study of Lincoln's Deadmans Run Watershed, meaning federal funding is available.  The approval allows the City of Lincoln and LPSNRD to move forward with project planning.  Actual construction is expected in 2021.  The Deadmans Run Flood Risk Reduction Project will eliminate 250 acres and approximately 500 buildings from the 100-year floodplain in an area between North 33rd and 48th streets, just north of the UNL East Campus.
