AMES, Iowa – June 17, 2019 – It’s going to be a lot easier to get from Council Bluffs to Sioux City this afternoon at 1 p.m. when Interstate 29 between I-680 near Crescent and I-680 at Loveland will reopen to traffic.
These areas have been closed since late May due to flooding in the area for a second time this spring. Due to continued flooding south of Council Bluffs, I-29 from U.S. 34 to the Missouri border remains closed.
Other flood-related closures continue on U.S. 34, Iowa 2, Iowa 275 and Iowa 333.
Travelers should check 511ia.org, 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.
