Flood damaged highway reopens to traffic today

Iowa Department of Transportation spokesperson Dena Gray-Fisher says Highway 2 from I-29 to Nebraska City will reopen to traffic on Monday, October 21st at 4:00 pm.
Traffic will be two-way eastbound. The westbound lanes remain closed as there is additional work that needs to be done. The ramps from Highway 2 to I-29 will be open to traffic.
Gray-Fisher also gives us an update on I-680 from the Mormon Bridge to I-29 north of Council Bluffs, Iowa. She says the traffic lanes are now paved in both directions and construction crews are now working on the median, shoulders and paving the ramps. She is hopeful the work will be done by the end of November.
