COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) – Council Bluffs has reopened its entrance to a pedestrian bridge over the Missouri River to Nebraska. The city closed off access to the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge in early July due to safety issues. The Missouri River was at a record flood level for weeks but has been receding. The bridge was reopened at the Iowa side on Saturday. The 3,000-foot bridge’s entrance in Omaha has remained open.
