OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- An accident on the shoulder of westbound Interstate 80 near the 72nd Street exit was backing up traffic to the east.
At 1:12 p.m. Wednesday, crews were working to remove a tipped truck trailer on the shoulder.
Omaha Police were reminding drivers not to take the shoulder to get around backed-up traffic:
I was also stuck in the traffic jam caused by an accident on I-80.I understand that we all have some where to be. The rules of the road still apply. The shoulder is not a lane to drive in when you feel like not waiting. #nottheonlyviolator #petpeeve #toomanytocount #opd pic.twitter.com/PEuFW3D8nv— Omaha Police Dept (@OmahaPolice) June 12, 2019
