This sign states that Nebraska state law requires vehicles to move over or slow down for stopped emergency or road assistance vehicles.  (Photo taken 5/28/16).

Interstate 76 East approaching Exit 102, which is the junction of Interstate 80 and the eastern terminus of Interstate 76 - 1 mile. This interchange, being the only exit on I-76 in Nebraska, uses I-80's mileage for the exit number.  (Photo taken 5/28/16).

Interstate 76 East at mile marker 2.  (Photo taken 5/28/16).

Interstate 76 East as it nears the ramp for Exit 102 (Interstate 80 West toward Sidney) and prepares to pass under Interstate 80's eastbound lane. I-80 actually is reduced down to one lane in each direction briefly during this interchange, which is rather odd. (Photo taken 5/28/16).

Interstate 76 East at Exit 102: Interstate 80 West - Sidney. Since this exit was closed at the time, traffic headed to I-80 West would have to proceed on I-80 East to Big Springs and get turned around. I-76 ends just ahead, as it prepares to merge into I-80 Eastbound's single lane at the time.  (Photo taken 5/28/16).

Interstate 76 East at mile marker 3.  (Photo taken 5/28/16).

Interstate 76 East at its eastern terminus, as it merges into Interstate 80 Eastbound's single lane to once again create two lanes heading east on I-80.  (Photo taken 5/28/16).
