Due to area flooding, the Iowa Department of Transportation closed Interstate 29 in the Honey Creek area (exit 66) overnight.
Interstate 29 traffic will be detoured using I-680 and I-80.
Relying on phone or in-vehicle navigation systems may not be reliable as closure changes happen rapidly and navigation systems can route traffic through areas not designed for heavy or some types of traffic.
