LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - This week Lincoln drivers should expect traffic delays during two portions of the day.

Lincoln Transportation & Utilities says concrete bridge girders will be transported through Lincoln to the South Beltway Project.

Officers with the Lincoln Police Department will be escorting construction crews moving concrete oversized loads from 63rd and Cornhusker to 27th Street, then south on 27th to the project location near Saltillo Road.

Drivers need to be aware this will be happening during the following days and times:

  • Tuesday, May 18 (7:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m.)
  • Thursday, May 20 (7:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m.)
  • Friday, May 21 (7:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m.)

“Intersections along the route will be closed as transport vehicles pass through. Southbound travelers on 27th Street are encouraged to find an alternate route during these times.”

Drivers are asked to be patient and use caution when encountering these traffic delays Monday.
