LINCOLN – A paving project will affect access to the west entrance of Lake Wanahoo in Saunders County beginning this month.
Paving will begin on June 15 at the intersection of Highway 92 and County Road 17, which runs north-south and is located about half a mile to the west of the lake. During the portion of the project when the stretch of County Road 17 with lake access is being paved, a temporary road will be created so boaters, anglers and campers can continue to access the lake.
During the entirety of the project, detours will be in place, and boaters, anglers and campers should be prepared to follow them
— To access the lake from the junction of Highway 92 and Highway 109, boaters and campers will go north two miles from this junction, then turn west on road O and follow it west to the T intersection with County Road 17. They will head south on 17 for one mile until they reach the entrance to the park.
— Coming from the north on Highway 92, campers and boaters will head west on road O for one mile until they come to the T intersection with County Road 17. They will then go south on County Road 17 for one mile until they reach the entrance to the west side of the park.
The project is expected to be completed at the end of October 2015. A park permit is required for each vehicle entering the park.
