 It looks like it will take months to repair major roads in western Iowa damaged by spring flooding. The Des Moines Register reports that state transportation official Scott Suhr says crews were on site Thursday to inspect some of the worst damages on parts of Interstate's 29 and 680, Highway 34 and state highway 2.

Around 25 miles of interstate in southwest Iowa and roughly 14 miles of roads north of Council Bluffs remain closed yesterday afternoon due to washed away shoulders, eroded pavement and scattered waste.
