I-80 Asphalt Surfacing in Lincoln County

NORTH PLATTE–Weather permitting, work will begin March 12 on an asphalt surfacing project on I-80 between North Platte and Hershey.

The Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) said in a release that the project will have concrete repair, sealing, grading, culvert work, and asphalt surfacing on 5.89 miles of I-80 located in Lincoln County.

The project will begin east of the Hershey Interchange (R.P. 170+97), extend east (to R.P. 176+82), and then end at the North Platte Interchange. The work will be performed under daytime and nighttime lane closures using arrow boards, barrels, and cones. The asphalt project is anticipated to be performed over two construction seasons with completion in May 2019.

NDOT reminds motorists to be extra careful in and near highway work zones, and to buckle up every trip.
