The Iowa Department of Transportation opened travel on flood-damaged Interstate 29 between U-S Highway 34 and the Missouri border Wednesday morning.
D-O-T planner, Scott Suhr says the opening comes after a lot of effort.
OC…….part of it” :15
He says drivers will have to use caution.
OC………on I-29″ :26
Suhr says it isn’t normal traffic flow, but it does get traffic moving to help those who have had to detour.
OC……the Missouri line” :07
Suhr says they had been working hard to get Iowa Highway 2 at I-29 open — but the continued rain and water over parts of the roadway has set that back.
Iowa 2 will be open at the interchange and you’ll be able to get fuel and any services you need at that location.
You won’t be able to go west, Nebraska Highway 2 remains closed, — but you will be able to go east on Iowa 2.
You can check out the progress on the flooded roadways at the D-O-T’s website.
