The Iowa DOT completed repairs to the I-80 overpass at Jersey Ridge Road today, and the overpass has re-opened. Jersey Ridge remains closed at Veterans Memorial Parkway; however, access from Jersey Ridge Road is available at Elmore Ave.
I have a couple of items from Public Works. The first notice is regarding Locust Street and the second is a flood update. In terms of the flood, I would encourage you to remind your audiences to avoid contact with the floodwaters. When we were out and about today, we noticed individuals wading through the water at the Marquette Street boat ramp. As you know, wading through flood waters is dangerous and dirty. We highly recommend against it.
