OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Iowa Department of Transportation (IDOT) says that the barricades on I-29 to Missouri have been removed!
While the road has been opened, IDOT says that drivers will still see limitations in some areas such as "head-to-head traffic" and "restrictions on oversize/overweight loads."
Missouri's State Patrol says it's open on their end as well.
The roadway had been closed after flooding pummeled the area, damaging it.
The barricades on repaired I-29 from the U.S. 34 interchange to the Missouri border are down! You'll still see limitations like head-to-head traffic in some areas and restrictions on oversize/overweight loads, but traffic is moving again. Thanks to everyone for their patience! pic.twitter.com/Fqn5yrhKkv— Iowa DOT (@iowadot) May 8, 2019
In Missouri, Interstate 29 southbound will open at 9:00 a.m. and Interstate 29 northbound will open at 10:00 a.m. These are approximate times as multiple barriers will need to be removed. Interstate 29 is opening in its entirety as well. pic.twitter.com/FGwWyfKU1r— MSHP Troop H (@MSHPTrooperH) May 8, 2019
