(Ames) — Iowa Department of Transportation officials say multiple flood closures remain in place for Interstates 29 and 680 as well as several surrounding roads and others throughout Iowa. Travel in Missouri and Nebraska is also being impacted by flooding.
Interstate closures include:
— I-680 in both directions between the Nebraska border and I-29 near Crescent (Mormon Bridge). The North portion of I-680 between I-80 and I-29 remains open for northbound traffic.
— I-29 in both directions between the I-680 interchange (near Loveland) and North 25th Street in Council Bluffs.
— Northbound I-29 between U.S. 136 in Missouri (near Rock Port, MO) and U.S. 34 in Iowa (near Pacific Junction).
— Southbound I-29 between the I-80 interchange in Iowa (near Council Bluffs) and U.S. 136 in Missouri (near Rock Port, MO)
The following multi-state detour remains in effect for Interstate 29 travelers:
— Northbound I-29 traffic is being detoured at I-35 in Kansas City, where travelers will continue north on I-35 into Iowa. From Des Moines, travelers will drive west on I-80 and continue onto I-680 to connect back with I-29 in Iowa.
— Southbound I-29 traffic will be detoured at Loveland onto eastbound I-680 where travelers will continue on to eastbound I-80 to Des Moines. From Des Moines, travelers will head south on I-35 into Missouri where travelers can connect with I-29 in Missouri.
Travelers should be aware that westbound I-680 on the detour route in Iowa is reduced to one lane due to damage.
