Homeowner says some trucks are getting lost on new Lincoln South Beltway

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – For some drivers, it’s going to take a while to get used to the new Lincoln South Beltway.

On the east end of the beltway, where Highway 2 and 120th Street connect, some drivers are getting confused due to a lack of clear signage.

A homeowner near the intersection said she has been helping people get back to the main road when they pass their turnoff.

Lisette Parks said the trucks are tearing up the ground in their attempts to turn around.

“From my kitchen window, I can spot, in the span of a minute, sometimes as many as three or four trucks that are going down the wrong way,” Parks said. “I think that once the project is finished and the signage is completed, that it will be a lot more functional for those that are using these roads. Right now, it’s really easy to get lost.”

She said online mapping systems also haven’t yet been updated with the opening of the beltway.

She’s called the Nebraska Department of Transportation to alert officials of the problem.
