safety will also be improved by the
project, Dixon said.
All of the medians will be
expanded to help keep out-of
control cars from crossing into
oncoming traffic.
In most places, the medians
are 64 feet wide. The construc
tion will widen them to 76 feet,
Dixon said.
The Department of Roads
plans to tear up the existing
road and replace it with three
lanes of concrete, but Dixon
said they should be able to
maintain two lanes of traffic in
each direction during the con
struction, which will be com
pleted in phases.

Lincoln Police will not increase the
amount of patrolling officers do

Lincoln Police Capt. Joy Citta.
LPD sends out a party
enforcement squad about six to
10 times per year, she said.
During these times, seven to

borhoods heavily populated
with college students.
Itoo to four undercover offi
cers may also be used to send
into to parties to observe if any
illegal actions, such as selling
alcohol without a license, drug
usage or underage drinking are
occurring, she said.
Ryan McAleer, a junior phys
ical education major, said he
thought NU Directions’ effort
was a good attempt to try to
curb underage drinking.
But McAleer said students
who want to drink illegally will
drink regardless of officers’
efforts to break up parties.
McAleer said at most parties
he’s attended, many students
just leave when the gathering is
broken up, without conse
“They’ll just find another
place to drink,” he said.
