The closing of I-29 leads to requests for travelers.
The Cassgram reports that the City of Plattsmouth issued a notice yesterday: Nebraska Department of Roads officials are asking that non-local travelers not use Nebraska Highway 75 as a detour. They are asking roads officials to the south to detour travelers through Kansas then north on Kansas Highway 63 to Nebraska Highway 50. NDOR will also be pointing traffic toward Highway 50 in Nebraska.
Highway 50 is also the route that many Cass County commuters are already using to avoid the congestion on Highway 75.
Offutt AB is looking at the possibility of staggering start times to relieve the commuter traffic pressure on Highway 75.
NDOR says the head-to-head traffic in the northbound lanes will be in effect until late this fall.
