Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News


Weather permitting, Constructors, Inc., of Lincoln, Nebraska, plans to close the intersections of 40th Street and Highway 2 and 48th Street and Highway 2 in all directions, and have northbound and southbound lane restrictions at 33rd Street and Highway 2 on Tuesday, July 19, and Wednesday, July 20, at 7:00 p.m.  The intersections will be closed until 6:00 a.m. the following morning, according to the Nebraska Department of Roads.

The closures are to allow for the milling and placement of asphalt in the area intersections.  All other intersections will remain open and Highway 2 will be closed from 27th Street to Old Cheney Rd.  Traffic will be detoured around the closures via Pioneers Blvd. for traffic north of Highway 2 and Old Cheney Road for traffic south of Highway 2.

Motorists are asked to watch for detour signage and as always drive safely through construction zones.
