The new westbound 3-lane pavement of I-80 between Waverly and the Greenwood (Exit 420) interchange has opened to traffic.

There still are lane closures for both the eastbound and westbound traffic to finish the removal of the concrete protection barriers, finish seeding, and to install permanent pavement markings.

Due to the lane closures needed, the speed limit will remain 65 mph.  NDOR plans to raise the speed limit to 75 mph sometime in December.  Work to complete the project will continue in 2013 and lane closures and reduced speed limits will be used.

Motorists are urged to watch for traffic signs and to drive safely near work zones.
