Weather permitting, beginning on the night of Monday, September 16 and ending the morning of September 20, US-6  will be closed for four nights between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.

It's to allow the state's contractor to remove the old eastbound Interstate 80 bridge over US-6, according to the Nebraska Department of Roads (NDOR).

The US-6 closure will occur where I-80 crosses over US-6. There will be no thru traffic allowed between Lincoln and Waverly. 

US-6 from N-63 to Waverly will be open to traffic.  US-6, from Lincoln to the I-80 east on-ramp at the Waverly Interchange, will be open to traffic. 

The westbound access ramp from US-6 to I-80 remains closed and is scheduled to be reopened later this year.

Westbound US-6 traffic to Lincoln, east of N-63, will take N-63 to I-80 west at the Greenwood Interchange, Exit 420, and follow I-80 west to the L55X/US-77 Interchange, Exit 405, then take L55X to get back to US-6. 

Travelers west of N-63 on US-6 headed into Lincoln will use N-63 to access I-80 west for the alternate route. 

In addition to the US-6 closure, the I-80 westbound exit ramp to US-6 at the Waverly Interchange, Exit 409, will be closed during the same timeframe. 

Travelers to Waverly from I-80 will use the Greenwood Interchange, Exit 420, to access US-6 via N-63. 

Eastbound I-80 traffic can exit the Interstate at the Waverly Interchange, Exit 409, to go  west on US-6 but will not be allowed to go east on US-6. 

Eastbound I-80 traffic on US-6 will use N-63 at the Greenwood Interchange, Exit 420, to access US-6.  Eastbound US-6 traffic will be detoured to I-80 east at the Waverly Interchange, Exit 409, and will proceed to the Greenwood Interchange, Exit 420, to N-63, then use N-63 to get back to US-6.
