BOONE, Iowa—As expected, the Iowa Department of Transportation closed US Highway 30 because of the rising flood waters of the Des Moines River. Unfortunately, Boone County authorities report a problem with people moving the road closed signs and trespassing. This year, an existing construction project on the Highway 30 bridge over the Des Moines River has created a concern by contractors. Officials say the DOT has instituted a zero tolerance for those moving or going around barricades.
