Interstate 80 from Utica to Kearney remains closed as of 11:00 a.m., (CST), due to snow pack and rough ice. The Nebraska State Patrol and the Nebraska Department of Roads are working to open the stretch of road, but no timeframe for reopening is yet available.
On other parts of Interstate 80 that are open, travelers are advised to reduce their speed, turn off cruise control, and use extreme caution due to snow being blown back onto the road and reduced visibility in some areas.
