Get ready to turn where you don't want to go again. The next round of interstate construction is going to put some new detour signs on I-29 and I-80 in Council Bluffs beginning Sunday night, November 5.

Here's what's in store:

  • Southbound I-29, between Ninth Avenue and Nebraska Avenue, will be closed from 10:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5, to 5:30 a.m. Friday, Nov. 10. That's for demolition of part of the Union Pacific Railroad’s bridge. Drivers are encouraged to use I-480 as a detour.
  • Eastbound and westbound I-80 will be closed at the I-80/I-29 interchange (exit 1) from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 5, and from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly from Tuesday through Thursday, Nov. 7-9, for bridge construction.
