The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) announced that they’ll be working with other law enforcement agencies across state lines to increase patrols along Highway 20.
On June 30, NSP announced that they will join forces with troopers from “many” other states to focus increasing patrols on U.S. Highway 20 in the month of July.
“Highway 20 is a major route of travel across the country and for vacationers coming to experience northern Nebraska,” said Captain Dain Hicks, Commander of Troop B, based in Norfolk. “This multi-state partnership is positively impacting the safety for Highway 20 travelers from Nebraska to Iowa and across the entire country.”
“With the goal of improving safety and reducing crashes on all roadways, the Iowa State Patrol is thankful for the partnerships that have been made to make this project successful,” said Lieutenant Brian Beenen, District 9 Commander, Cedar Falls. “This coast-to-coast initiative involves over 40 law enforcement agencies across the country. We look forward to continued collaboration to make our roadways safe.”
Highway 20 runs across the U.S. from Massachusetts to Oregon.
