Portion of I-480 near Missouri River, several ramps will close this week
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - A closure beginning Tuesday may affect your commute if your route takes you near the Missouri River on Interstate 480.
NDOT officials said Monday in a release that the right lanes of the I-480 westbound ramp to Dodge Street, as well as the Douglas Street ramp to I-480 eastbound, will be closed between 7 a.m. Sept. 12 and 9 a.m. Sept. 22. Work was originally scheduled for last week.
In addition, Riverfront Drive will be closed from September 12 to 22 -- that closure runs from 8th Street to the south end of the Kiewit Luminarium’s parking lot.
The I-480 westbound ramp to Dodge Street will close between September 19 and 22.
The largest closure will take place overnight between September 21 and 22 -- I-480 will close in both directions at the Missouri River to allow for overhead sign installation. During this time, traffic will either need to detour to I-80 or I-680 to get across the river.
All closures are weather-permitting. Work on I-480 between 20th Street and the river is set to be completed this fall.
