OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- The same day ORBT tweeted a video of its first bus for the city's new routes cruising the city, further construction updates on two of the new stops were announced.

Crews will be pouring concrete for the platforms used for the buses, impacting westbound traffic at two of the Dodge Street stops under construction.

Westbound Dodge Street traffic at 62nd will experience "various lane restrictions" for two days — weather permitting — starting Thursday, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.; similar restrictions at 72nd and Dodge will start Friday.

ORBT contruction updates can be found on their website. Meanwhile, keep an eye out for Bus 1901.
