The Iowa Department of Transportation’s website lists northbound Interstate 29 from the Missouri state line to about 40 miles north near the Pacific Junction exit remains closed due to flooding.

Drivers on I-29 are being rerouted onto Interstate 35 in Kansas City, Missouri, north to Des Moines, then over I-80 back to I-29 at Council Bluffs.

The detour takes drivers almost 140 miles out of the way.
