2 new bridges planned on flood-prone Iowa highway

Two new bridges are planned for a highway low spot near a Missouri River bridge that connects southeast Nebraska with southwest Iowa.
The Omaha World-Herald reports that the Iowa Transportation Department will begin taking bids next month for construction of eastbound and westbound bridges for a section of Iowa Highway 2. The highway runs from Interstate 29 west to the bridge and Nebraska City on the Nebraska side.
The highway reopened in May after 56 days of being shut down, with drivers forced to use a temporary lane made of permeable rock. But that section eventually became submerged again. The section also was flooded in 2011.
An Iowa Transportation Department official says construction could start as soon as August but probably wouldn’t be finished until fall 2021.
