UPDATE: North and south I-35 now open near Ames

Posted: Updated:

AMES (KWWL) -- The Iowa Department of Transportation re-opened both the northbound and southbound lanes of I-35 that were closed near Ames due to flooding.

The DOT central complex in Ames, which includes the District 1 office and the driver's license station, are closed Thursday due to a water main break that caused the city of Ames to shut off water service.

Other roads that are still closed due to flooding are:

- U.S. 61 and U.S. 136 in Lee County - The road is closed near Keokuk. Traffic normally going across the Des Moines River Bridge near Keokuk is being directed to the Des Moines River Bridge at St. Francisville.

- Iowa 92 in Mahaska County - The road is closed between Iowa 23 (Oskaloosa) and Mahaska County Road V-13 (Rose Hill). The detour follows U.S. 63 north from Oskaloosa to Mahaska County Road G-29, east on G-29 to V-13, then south on V-13 to Iowa 92.
