Motorists who travel Interstate 29 between Highway 92 and Council Bluffs will want to plan an alternate route early this week. The Iowa Department of Transportation says the southbound lanes of I-29 between Exit 37 for U-S Highway 92, and Exit 4 for I-80 and Council Bluffs, will be closed for construction beginning today (Sunday) at 7-p.m., through 5-a.m. Monday.

Monday night at 7, the northbound lanes of I-29 in those same locations will be closed due to construction, until 5-a.m. Tuesday. Work on the highway is part of the DOT’s project to improve Interstates 80, 29 and 480 around Council Bluffs.
