FLOODING RECEDING: Roads Reopened

hwy330 flooding

Some cooperation from Mother Nature and hard work by road crews helped to get traffic flowing again in Marshall County.

Crews had to shut down Highway 330 and Highway 14 last week when flood waters went over the road.

This weekend the Iowa River dropped enough for crews to be able to clean up the road and reopen both highways.

However, highway 169 near Adel is still closed due to flooding.

Crews shut down the road last Monday when it was no longer safe for drivers to pass. A timeframe on when that road will be reopened hasn’t been released.

Early last week there were fears the Fleur Drive would close. On Sunday, the arterial road is in the clear, for now.

The river crested at just below 16.5 feet Friday.

The current forecast has the river dropping below flood stage Wednesday.

The flood waters may no longer be threatening Fleur Drive but at Water Works Park you can still see significant flooding from the Raccoon River.

The park will begin to dry out as the river recedes.
