Traffic today between Lincoln and Grand Island on westbound I-80 was very heavy, but moving along at or near posted speeds. US 30 and state highways between Freemont and Lincoln had very little traffic. Rest area parking along I-80 was almost full. I do recommend that if you see a parking spot on the truck side as you pull in, then you should take it. Once you get to the end of the car parking, there’s no place to turn around.
We did see units of the Nebraska National Guard out and about, but there doesn’t appear to be any need for their services at this time.
Eclipse glasses appear to be unavailable. But they’re not needed, so don’t let that stop you from coming.
The Cornhusker State seems to have everything under control.
