Section of Interstate 80 Collapses

Updated: Thursday, October 10 2013, 06:43 PM CDT
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) -- The Iowa Transportation Department expects to reopen eastbound Interstate 80 on Thursday morning.
   District 4 engineer Troy Jerman says the pavement patch should be cured and ready for use by 8 a.m.
   Jerman says a portion of the interstate shoulder collapsed about 8:15 p.m. Wednesday as workers were installing a pipe under the roadway. They discovered a void that ran under the eastbound lanes, so they were closed to traffic.
   Drivers trying to cross from Nebraska into Iowa had been advised to seek other routes on Thursday. They were directed north to the Interstate 680 or south to the Veterans Memorial Bridge in southern Omaha.
   Westbound lanes remained in use.
