Road Conditions Less Than Ideal | I-80 Back Open Sunday Night

By  | 

I-80's westbound lanes were blocked between Kearney and Lexington, due to winter weather driving conditions.

Jackknifed semi trucks along the Interstate between the Overton and Elm Creek interchanges forced road closures.

A 10/11 viewer reported that one semi truck jack knifed, and another t-boned the truck near Elm Creek. The Nebraska State Patrol in Grand Island said initially both lanes were closed, then crews reopened one lane after several hours. As of late Sunday evening, all lanes are back open.

Earlier Sunday around 1:30pm, another semi truck jack knifed and blocked both westbound lanes at Overton. That crash forced a closure and rerouted traffic for nearly six hours.

A semi crash had Interstate 80 westbound at a standstill near mile marker 346, two miles west of Bradshaw.

NSP reports several cars had spun out or crashed into ditches in the same area. Of the few crashes which had injuries, all are listed as being minor.

As of 9:00pm, the Nebraska Department of Roads website had
Interstate 80 eastbound at Overton reopened.

The Nebraska State Patrol confirms all of Interstate 80 is open.
