Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) crews are prepared for another spring snow storm which looks to impact a good portion of the state Wednesday through Thursday. Forecasts call for blizzard conditions in western Nebraska with heavy and significant snow along with high winds. Workers and equipment will be out to clear the highways and monitor changing conditions throughout the storm.
“Nebraska has sustained a long and hard winter. We encountered record flooding just a month ago that impacted much of the state after a historic blizzard. This latest storm looks again to have significant impact on a majority of the state,” said Director Kyle Schneweis. “As always, drivers are encouraged to be informed about weather and road conditions before making the decision to travel. Regardless, our crews will be out working to clear roadways as conditions allow in a potential blizzard.”
