South Lincoln Beltway trip report

(1/4) > >>

SD Mapman:
Figured I'd make this its own thread. Before the arctic blast of death settles in tomorrow and the ice completely covers my car I was able to travel the completed length of the South Lincoln Beltway (NE 2) this afternoon. It's a nice drive, though a bit surreal for someone like me who's been traveling to Lincoln for cross country meets, parties, etc. before any dirt work on this whatsoever. Old NE 2 is indeed Nebraska Parkway, with no business designation, and L55W has also been decommissioned. Sorry if the photos aren't the greatest, the ice was starting to come in.

Legacy signage for NE 2 by the S. 84th Walmart

Legacy milepost. There weren't any on the beltway yet.

New streetblade for old NE 2.

The snow-covered field straight ahead is where the road used to go.

More to come after dinner.

SD Mapman:

First "JUNCTION 2" sign.

Several signs that tell people you have to turn left for East 2 (since no one is used to doing that).

Thanks for sharing! Great to see this nearing completion. It is indeed a surreal experience to drive through a finished project after following its progress for years.
