Interstate 29 between Interstate 680 near Crescent, Iowa, north to Loveland, Iowa, reopened to traffic at 1 p.m. Monday, the Iowa Department of Transportation said.

That approximately 10-mile stretch has been closed since late May because of flooding in the area for a second time this spring. Because of continued Missouri River flooding south of Council Bluffs, I-29 from U.S. Highway 34 to the Missouri border remains closed.

Other flood-related closures continue on U.S. 34, Iowa Highway 2, Iowa 275 and Iowa 333.

Travelers should check, 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.
