Volleyball Day in Nebraska Visitors Should Be On Defense

Nebraska Department of Transportation

Aug. 28, 2023 (Lincoln, Neb.) — The Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT), in partnership with the Nebraska State Patrol and City of Lincoln, advises Nebraska volleyball fans traveling to Lincoln for the upcoming Volleyball Day on Wednesday, Aug. 30, 2023, to use defensive driving to safely get to Memorial Stadium. A large increase in traffic in and around Lincoln and on Interstate 80 (I-80) can lead to sudden slowdowns and congestion on the roads. Additionally, road construction means lane closures – so paying attention is extra important to safely navigate crowded streets and increased pedestrian activity. The I-80 exits at I-180/Downtown can become very congested before, during and after events at Memorial Stadium. Visitors are encouraged to use other routes into Lincoln if at all possible.
