I-35 SHUTDOWN: Damaged Bridge Removal
There’s a major detour in place Tuesday night on Interstate 35 south of Des Moines.
Both the northbound and southbound lanes of I-35 are closed between the Iowa 5 exit near Cumming and the Highway 92 exit at Bevington.
Traffic is being re-routed to Highway 28.
The road will re-open at around 5 a.m.
The road is being shut down so a damaged bridge can be removed. A piece of construction equipment hit the bridge in early May.
I-35 will be closed again Wednesday night to finish the removal work.
