With the girls and boys state basketball tournaments the next two weekends, state troopers plan to conduct what they call “high visibility enforcement efforts.” Troopers from Omaha and Lincoln will focus on high traffic areas to try and cut the potential for crashes. Motorists, especially young drivers, are encouraged to pay extra attention as they travel to and from the tournament games. Traffic could also be congested as several road construction projects are underway that may cause slowdowns or delays, including the Interstate 80 widening project between Omaha and Lincoln. Check road and weather conditions statewide by dialing 511 or visiting the website: www.511Nebraska.org.
