Missouri River flooding prompted the Iowa and Missouri departments of transportation this afternoon to officially closed Interstate 29 from exit 10 (Iowa 2) in Iowa to the U.S. 136 interchange (exit 110) near Rock Port, Mo.
This is expected to be a long-term interstate closure.
Officials expect portions of I-29 and Iowa Highway 333 near Hamburg to become inundated with floodwaters because of the levee breach Monday in Atchison County, Mo.
