OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Road crews are beginning work along U.S. Highway 6 between Interstate 80 and West Dodge Road

Construction was slated to begin Monday, according to a release from the Nebraska Department of Transportation.

Depending on the weather, there will be many lane and shoulder closures. Authorities advise drivers to be cautious in and near work zones and to also use seatbelts, and put cell phones down.

The completion of this construction project is anticipated in Spring 2022; officials say the closures are needed to interconnect existing traffic signals with fiber optic cable.

Watts Electric Co. of Waverly was awarded the $1,439,620 contract for the work, according to the release.
