SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

The Big Sioux River has crested earlier than expected, at 105.63 feet Friday morning, June 20, and has been falling since.

Crews built a temporary levee across Interstate 29, which should protect much of the city but closed off the interstate and forced motorists onto detours.

Floodwater's already block most roads connecting Sioux City, Iowa, and Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
