This time it wasn’t the weather that closed Interstate 80 in western Nebraska.
I-80 has re-opened in the Panhandle after being closed so the Air Force could look for a box of ammunition that had fallen out of the back of a Humvee.
Officials at the F. E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming says the ammo has been found. The base reports a security team traveling in a western Nebraska missile field lost the ammunition. The ammunition and some other items have been recovered. The Air Force says the public was never put in danger, because of the incident.
Lanes in both directions on I-80 were closed for a time Thursday morning.
