Trail Danger

The City of Lincoln has begun work to repair its Jamaica North Trail, which continues north from the NRD's Homestead Trail, just south of Saltillo Road, at about 24th Street. Heavy equipment is in use and is being stored at the Trailhead along Saltillo Road. Homestead users are asked to avoid the area until work is completed. Please utilize the Roca Trailhead for parking if you plan to walk or ride the Homestead Trail from the Lincoln end.

Salt Creek Levee Website

The NRD has begun a multi-year project to update Lincoln's Salt Creek Levee, so it can continue to provide flood risk reduction for residents and businesses for another 50 years. A website developed by the project consultant, JEO Consulting Group, the NRD the U.S Army Corps of Engineers and the City of Lincoln will allow people in the district to monitor progress of the many individual levee projects over the next several years.
