The Nebraska State Patrol in conjunction with the Nebraska Department of Roads has re-instituted the closure of Interstate 80, both east and westbound lanes from Lincoln to Kimball.
As of 12:00 p.m., Thursday, December 20, all lanes of I-80 west of Lincoln and east of Kimball remain closed due to snow packed and icy road conditions.
On other parts of Interstate 80 that are open, travelers are advised to reduce their speed, turn off cruise control, and use extreme caution due to snow being blown back onto the road and reduced visibility in some areas.
Motorists are encouraged to keep up to date with the latest weather and road conditions by utilizing 511, Nebraska’s Advanced Travelers Information System.
511 should be accessed via phone by calling 511 or 800-906-9069 from any cell phone or landline. Travelers may also access the webcams and weather forecasts from www.ndortraveler.mobi, which is viewable on any mobile device or PC.
