I-29 Open, Again

After nearly three weeks this second time, I-29 running from St. Joseph’s, Missouri through Iowa to US-34 in Pacific Junction is open as of June 17.

The corridor, running along the Missouri River, was closed since May 29 after heavy storms dumped record amounts of rainfall across the region. Other roads in the area remain closed due to flooding and damage caused by the high waters.

This 150-mile stretch of Interstate 29 was shuttered for the first time in March because of historic flooding. That previous closure lasted longer than 2 months.

Presently, MoDOT says loads over 12-feet-wide still need to use alternate routes.
