May 2, 2013 By: Trucking News Staff Tags: News

Kenworth of Lincoln has opened a full-service truck dealership within a remodeled facility on property located west of Lincoln near the Interstate 80 and Highway 77 interchange.

A member of the Kenworth dealer network with its nearly 340 locations in the United States and Canada, the renovated Kenworth facility is located on a sprawling 24-acre parcel off Exit 396 on eastbound U.S. Interstate 80 and Exit 397 off westbound I-80 at 201 S.W. 27th St. in Lincoln.

The 19,400-square-foot facility features six service bays, a 7,500-square-foot parts department, separate full showers for men and women drivers, three washers and three dryers, and a comfortable driver’s lounge with Internet access.

Tom Berg, general manager of the Kenworth of Lincoln and Kenworth of Omaha locations, said the dealership’s location near I80 offers drivers and owner-operators 10 acres of convenient paved and flat ground to maneuver and park.

Interstate 80 is a major east-west route that traverses the length of Nebraska from Omaha in the east to the state’s border with Wyoming in the west. Berg said that before the Lincoln location opened, customers had to drive more than 50 miles northeast to the nearest Kenworth location in Omaha to get service.

The Lincoln location is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday. The phone number is (402) 474-9750. Mike Anderson is service manager and Jimmy Searles is parts manager. New truck sales manager is Jim Hauptman.
