Work will force overnight closure of I-480 in Omaha

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A resurfacing project will force the nighttime closure of Interstate 480 in Omaha for more than three months and reroute traffic into Council Bluffs.

The Omaha World-Herald reports work will begin Monday night on parts of the freeway through Omaha.

The Nebraska Department of Roads says will be done each night from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., and then the lanes will reopen from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

When the freeway is closed, traffic will be through Council Bluffs, along Interstate 29.

Officials plan to complete the work before the College World Series begins in mid-June.
