The eastbound lanes of Interstate 80 between the Missouri River and South Expressway exit in Council Bluffs reopened Thursday morning.

Iowa Transportation Department engineer Troy Jerman said a portion of the interstate shoulder collapsed about 8:15 p.m. Wednesday as workers were installing a pipe under the roadway. They discovered a void that ran under the eastbound lanes so they were closed to traffic.

Drivers trying to cross from Nebraska into Iowa were directed north to Interstate 680 or south to the Veterans Memorial Bridge.
