The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is alerting the public of planned lane closures for State Route 65 (SR-65) in both directions.
Due to rain, lane closures scheduled for last Thursday had to be cancelled and have now been rescheduled. Starting at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 2, to 5 a.m. Tuesday, April 3, construction crews will close the right lanes on both northbound and southbound SR-65. Crews will restripe the right-edge lane marker on northbound SR-65, resulting in the closure of the Twelve Bridges onramp while work is occurring. The southbound lane closure is needed to re-align right-edge concrete barriers previously displaced by the traveling public.
The work being done is part of a $325 million project to create an 11.7-mile highway bypass around the City of Lincoln. The bypass will open to the public on schedule in 2012.
