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.
