LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The Nebraska Department of Transportation has reopened I-80 between Grand Island and the Wyoming border.

It had been closed since Wednesday afternoon following significant snowfall in multiple locations.

The Nebraska State Patrol said the continued closure was because of impassable conditions in those areas.

NDOT is still urging drivers to use caution when traveling on the now-open portions of the road.

According to NSP, troopers responded to 30 crashes and 305 motorist assists between Wednesday and Thursday morning.
