Work Continues on the I-80/27th Street Interchange in Lincoln

June 19, 2017 (Lincoln, Neb.) — Weather permitting, Phase 2 work is scheduled to begin June 21 on the

I‑80/27th Street Interchange.  Work will include removal and replacement of deteriorating concrete in the

southbound lanes of 27th Street, I-80 ramp repairs and bridge rehabilitation, according to the Nebraska

Department of Roads.


Southbound traffic will be switched to head-to-head onto the newly constructed northbound lanes from

Arbor Road to Wildcat Drive, reducing northbound and southbound 27th Street traffic to single lanes.

The westbound I-80 on-ramp at the 27th Street interchange will be temporarily closed for approximately

40 days for removal and replacement of the concrete, with anticipated reopening the end of July.


Northbound and southbound 27th Street traffic wanting to go west on I-80 during this time will be

detoured onto eastbound I-80 to the 405 exit where motorists will be able to access westbound I-80 at

the 405 interchange.  Traffic will be maintained while repair work on the eastbound I-80 off-ramp at the

27th Street interchange is being done during Phase 2.


Hawkins Construction Company, of Omaha, Nebraska, has the $3,967,191 contract.  The project is

anticipated to be completed in the fall of 2017.


The Department of Roads’ project manager is Robert Traudt of Lincoln.  Motorists are reminded to drive

cautiously through construction zones, expect delays and are encouraged to use alternate routes.
