By  | 

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Officials have announced that a portion of Interstate 29 in southwestern Iowa has reopened after being damaged by flooding in March.

The Iowa Department of Transportation says I-29 between U.S. Highway 34 near Pacific Junction and the Missouri border has reopened, but that travelers should expect some lane closures and slower travel times.

The department says no oversized or overweight loads are being allowed and that widths are currently restricted to 12 feet.

Iowa Highway 2 will only open to eastbound traffic from I-29 and allow for traveler services. Nebraska Highway 2 between Nebraska City and the Iowa state line remains closed.
