Lincoln South Beltway set to open in December

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The Lincoln South Beltway will soon be open to drivers, the Nebraska Department of Transportation announced on Friday.

Hawkins Construction Company has completed major construction of the beltway’s main line, according to state officials.

The 11-mile, four-lane freeway is scheduled to open on Dec. 14, months ahead of the expected May opening.

The beltway isn’t finished. Final construction is expected in fall 2024, officials said in a press release.

State officials say the beltway will help reduce congestion on Nebraska Highway 2 through Lincoln.

The transportation department was able to fund the project thanks to the Build Nebraska Act and TIGER Grant funding.
