Traffic was backed up on I-680 due to a law enforcement action at Blondo Street.

According to a spokesperson from the Omaha Police Department, an individual was in distress on the bridge above the interstate. In order to keep that person safe, OPD and Nebraska State Patrol coordinated with semi-truck drivers to position their semis beneath the bridge, "because they determined it would be quicker than it would have taken to get an OFD ladder truck to the location."
