LINCOLN, Neb. — The Lied Platte River Bridge, a pedestrian bridge that spans the Platte River near South Bend, will temporarily close for repairs at the end of May.
The Sarpy County side of the bridge will close beginning May 31 for pavement and abutment repairs. Construction is expected to last about a month. There will still be limited access to the Cass County side.
The Lied Platte River Bridge was initially used by the Rock Island Railroad. After the railroad abandoned the bridge, it was converted for use by pedestrians and bicyclists. It is part of a trail system that connects Lincoln and Omaha and is jointly maintained and operated by the Papio-Missouri Natural Resources District (NRD), the Lower Platte South NRD and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
