Flooding has caused the closure of Interstate 29 between Loveland and Crescent, north of Omaha.
Drivers heading south toward Omaha are being rerouted east on Interstate 680 to westbound Interstate 80.
Another possible detour involves driving west on US Route 30 from Missouri Valley to Blair, Nebraska, then taking either US Route 75 or Nebraska 133 south.
The Missouri River is expected to crest in the area on Friday and the Iowa DOT says in a tweet that they are “hopeful the river will recede fairly quickly.”
There's water over I-29 north of Council Bluffs this morning (9-20 at 7 a.m.). It's closed between exits 61 and 71. The detour route uses I-80 and I-680. We're hopeful the river will recede fairly quickly, but please check the 511 app or https://t.co/2XHJbG5B9b for updates. pic.twitter.com/ZxSiqPK5M7
