North Entrance Now Open

Our additional North Entrance is now open for the season from 9 - 5 p.m. daily. Guests can exit through the area until 5:30 p.m.

Road Closures

Construction work will close a section of Interstate 480 in Omaha for a few months and reroute traffic into Council Bluffs.

The closed sections:

-- The westbound I-80 ramp to northbound I-480

-- The northbound U.S. Highway 75/Kennedy Freeway ramps to westbound I-80 and northbound I-480

-- The F Street entrance ramp to northbound Highway 75

The ramp closures are necessary for bridge deck repairs, according to the Nebraska Department of Transportation. The work will include a 3-inch asphalt overlay and protective membrane layer, replacement of bridge approaches and remodeling of bridge abutments, roads officials said.

The project is expected to be completed in the fall.

Also, the northbound lanes of I-480 will be resurfaced from about Dewey Avenue south to the I-80 interchange. That project, which also will include some finishing work that began in April on the southbound I-480 lanes, will be done at night from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. The lanes will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
