Central States News: Flood Damage To Omaha-Area Interstate Could Take A Year To Repair

The images shown here (click on for full size) are of Interstate 680 as it crosses the north part of Metro Omaha into Iowa north of Council Bluffs.

The Missouri River flooding has destroyed the Interstate's roadbed- and officials estimate it could take a year- or more- the fully repair that stretch of freeway- according to the story in the OMAHA (NE) WORLD-HERALD.

Note that Interstate 29 is STILL closed near Hamburg and again north of Council Bluffs in Iowa by the receeding Missouri River flooding.
