Governor Pete Ricketts has directed the Nebraska State Patrol to temporarily waive certain requirements for trucks traveling in and through Nebraska in support of efforts to the response to severe flooding. This order is in addition to the Governor’s emergency declaration issued on Tuesday.
“In light of the historic flooding and devastation our communities are facing, the state has temporarily waived the length and weight requirements for trucks traveling in and through Nebraska,” said Governor Ricketts. “This will help move materials more efficiently around the state as we work together to respond to the impacts of the flooding and severe weather.”
The directive is effective immediately until April 15, Nebraska is working with surrounding states to encourage them to temporarily ease their restrictions as well.
