Weather permitting, US-6 will be closed at the I-80 bridge between Lincoln and Waverly on Thursday night, July 11, at 10:00 p.m., and reopened the following morning at 6:00 a.m., according to the Nebraska Department of Roads.  The closure will allow the contractor, Hawkins Construction Company, of Omaha, to install girders for the new westbound I-80 bridge.

If the contractor is unable to complete the planned work in one night, then US-6 will be closed the following night during the same hours.  The US-6 closure will occur where I-80 crosses over US-6 and there will be no thru traffic allowed between Lincoln and Waverly.  US-6 from N-63 to Waverly will be open to traffic.  US-6 from Lincoln to the I-80 east on-ramp at the Waverly interchange will be open to traffic.

Westbound US-6 traffic to Lincoln east of N-63 will take N-63 to I-80 west at the Greenwood interchange, Exit 420, and follow I-80 west to the L-55X/US-77 interchange, Exit 405, then take L-55X to get back to US-6.  Travelers west of N-63 on US-6 headed west into Lincoln will use N-63 to access I-80 west for the alternate route.

The I-80 westbound exit ramp to US-6 at the Waverly interchange, Exit 409, will be closed at the same time as the US-6 closure.  Travelers to Waverly from I-80 will need to use the Greenwood interchange, Exit 420, to access US-6 via N-63.  The westbound access ramp from US-6 to I-80 remains closed.

Eastbound I-80 traffic will exit the interstate at the Waverly interchange, Exit 409, for westbound US-6 to Lincoln.  Eastbound US-6 traffic will be detoured to I-80 east at the Waverly interchange, Exit 409, to the Greenwood interchange, Exit 420, to N-63, to US-6 for westbound US-6 to Waverly and eastbound US-6.
