Overnight lane closures planned for Highway 65

-A +A
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is planning to close lanes on State Route 65 in both directions starting at 7 p.m. Thursday and re-opening at 5 a.m. on Friday. Construction crews will close the right lanes on both northbound and southbound State Route 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.
