Interstate 29 between I-680 near Crescent and North 25th Street in Council Bluffs and I-680 from I-29 to the Nebraska border is now reopened to traffic.

All lanes of I-29 will be open, but traffic will not be allowed to continue north of I-680 on I-29. For I-680, both westbound lanes will be open and one eastbound lane will be available for traffic.

These areas have been closed since late May due to flooding in the area for a second time this spring. Part of the repairs from earlier flooding included adding stabilizing elements to the ditches on I-680 to minimize future flood damage. Those elements have proven their worth in that there is minimal damage from this second round of flooding to the roadway/shoulder and slope areas where the repairs were completed.

Other segments of I-29, as well as U.S. 34, Iowa 2, Iowa 275 and Iowa 333 remain closed. Travelers should check, the Iowa 511 mobile apps or call 511 (within Iowa) or 800-288-1047 (nationwide) for up-to-date closure information on state-owned roadways across Iowa. Closures due to flooding can be viewed by turning on the incident layer on the online map and mobile app.
