Route descriptionEdit

In Nebraska, US 77 is a major north–south artery connecting the capital city of Lincoln with outlying areas to the north and south. The highway is designated as the Homestead Expressway from Beatrice to Interstate 80 (I-80) at Lincoln. In Lincoln, US 77 becomes a full controlled-access expressway before it overlaps with I-80 for about 8 miles. North of I-80, US 77 continues as an expressway to Wahoo, where it becomes a two-lane undivided road. It remains a two-lane highway except for two sections near Fremont, which are four-lane divided highways. The expressway north of Fremont is shared with US 275 and Nebraska Highway 91 (N-91). US 275 and N-91 separate from US 77 just south of Winslow, Nebraska and US 77 continues north as a two-lane highway until it meets U.S. Route 75 at Winnebago. The two highways run together to the junction of I-129 and US 20 at Dakota City, where US 75 breaks off and US 77 continues northward as a divided highway through South Sioux City before exiting the state via the Siouxland Veterans Memorial Bridge. The national end of US 77 lies four-tenths mile (640 m) on the other side of the bridge, at an interchange with I-29 in Sioux City, Iowa.
