I drive a truck on a dedicated route over US 34 in Iowa and IL, well about a month ago the levee's in Gulfport area where breached and flooded the town and the hwy with over 10ft of water over the roadway (I was actually coming back and was only about 10 miles from the area when DOT stopped me and turned me around, turns out I had taken a short nap earlier in the day or I would have been ON that section when it flooded out like one guy that had to be rescued off the roof of his car by helicopter)
Anyway for the past month I have had to detour up through quad cities (ok my inconvenience pails in comparison to the problems of the people in this town) Well Friday they reopened the hwy so I am able to cross again, but part of the hwy is still under water so they put up concrete barricades and then filled with gravel to raise the level of the road, and added lights to control traffic.
Anyway I took some pics of the hwy, the temporary roadway, the Gulfport gas station the town of Gulfport (including some of the strip clubs) and the pumps they are using to try and drain all the area behind the levees.

here is the pics
