I-80 Construction Will Resume, from Lexington to Overton on April 1

Nebraska I-80 Construction | I-80 Exit Guide

The Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) reports that weather permitting, work will resume April 1 on I-80, from reference post 238.27 to reference post 247.88.

I-80 between Lexington and Overton will be transitioned into two-lane, two-way traffic on the westbound lanes with a single lane in each direction on April 15. Eastbound traffic will utilize a median crossover to access the westbound lanes. Preparatory work for the traffic switch will include lane closures in both directions beginning April 1.

An 11-foot width restriction will be in effect and the speed limit will be reduced to 65 mph. Traffic phasing is required for the replacement of existing pavement for the eastbound lanes. Two-lane, two-way traffic is anticipated to remain in effect until Sept. 2024.

The purpose of this project is to preserve the transportation asset, improve the reliability of the transportation system and perpetuate the mobility of the traveling public.

Motorists should expect reduced speeds and lane reductions within the work zones and are reminded to drive cautiously through highway construction zones.
