Interstate 80, other roadways in Nebraska remain closed after storm


NORTH PLATTE, Neb. — Interstate 80 remains closed from the Wyoming state line to North Platte following a winter storm that howled through the area this week, officials said.

Westbound U.S. Highway 30 also is closed from the state line to Ogallala and to westbound traffic from North Platte. The state Transportation Department also reported other roadway closures, including U.S. Highway 385 and Nebraska Highway 71.
