OMAHA, NE — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in cooperation with the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District (NRD) and the City of Lincoln, will hold an open house on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Nebraska Educational Telecommunications (NET) Center, 1800 N. 33rd Street in Lincoln to provide area residents, businesses and other interested parties with an update on the Deadman’s Run flood risk feasibility study. There will be a brief, formal presentation at 7:00 p.m.

“Since initiating this study in 2015, we have considered input gathered at previous public meetings and worked closely with our sponsors, the Lower Platte South NRD and the City of Lincoln, to develop a solution to reduce flood impacts to life safety and property along Deadman's Run and the surrounding community,” said Jeff Bohlken, project manager with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. “This open house allows us the opportunity to share with the public where we are at in the study process including an update on the alternatives that were considered and the preliminary preferred alternative.”
