Meanwhile, staff in Lincoln updated our social media with traffic information, incident reports, and sharing helpful posts from law enforcement agencies. Jeni Campana coordinated with a host of other state agencies at the NEMA Emergency Operations Center, where joint briefings were held almost hourly.
The eclipse drew thousands of people from all over the country and the world to Nebraska and onto our roads. Whether they came from Massachusetts, Texas, Japan, Florida, Washington, or Slovakia, our goal was to provide a safe trip across our state.
From all of us at the Nebraska DOT, thank you for helping us make August 21st a safe and exciting day.
