Husker fans beware of road construction

UNL Fans – Driving South to Kansas? The Nebraska Department of Roads is reminding motorists using Highway 77 from Beatrice south to the Kansas state line of the highway project in the Wymore area.

This project may have two locations within the work area where there are lane closures, flaggers, and pilot vehicles. There is also a 12' width limit and a reduced speed limit at those locations. This highway work could affect Big Red Fans traveling south on Highway 77 to the Nebraska-Kansas State football game at Manhattan on Thursday.

Those traveling Highway 77 to the game may want to choose another route around this area. Instead of turning on Highway 77, through Blue Springs and Wymore, motorists should continue traveling straight on Highway 112 to Highway 8, then east on Highway 8 back to the junction of Highways 8 and 77, into Kansas. Safe driving is traveling in your seat belts.
