I-80 Will Be Closed Temporarily Next Week Due To Aurora Tornado

Storm damage repairs are forcing authorities to temporarily shut down traffic next week on a stretch of Interstate 80 in south-central Nebraska.

Lanes in both directions will be closed starting at 7 a.m. CDT on Monday and Tuesday between the Giltner interchange, mile marker 324, and the Aurora interchange, mile marker 332.

Traffic will be rerouted east and west along U.S. Highway 34. Nebraska Road Department officials say the closures are expected to last about two hours each day.

Power lines that cross the interstate will be replaced.  They were heavily damaged during the May 30 storms.
