With the planned re-opening of Interstate 680 east of the Mormon Bridge this week, many are wondering how construction crews were able to repair the flood-damaged lanes so fast. The Iowa Department of Transportation has provided a time lapse video that shows crews rapidly removing and constructing the eastbound and westbound lanes from scratch.

We have attached the video to this story.

A 3.1 mile stretch of I-680 was reduced to chunks of concrete after the spring & summer Missouri River flood. The plan is to re-open the lanes about 2pm Wednesday, November 2.
