Missouri River into NE
With US 20 and US 75
I-29, exit 144B
I-129 enters Iowa from Nebraska just south of Sioux City, multiplexed with US 20 and US 75.
I-129 approaches the border crossing from Nebraska. You can see the "Sergeant Floyd" Missouri River bridge in the background, including the square, white welcome to Iowa sign.
I-129 crosses the state line. As it does so, it immediately meets its parent, I-29. This is also the beginning of Business US 75.
Heading the other direction, westbound into Nebraska.
I-129 meets its parent I-29 right at the border, and goes only 0.26 miles farther east before it officially terminates as it crosses the other interstate.
I-129's terminus. Note the "END I-129" sheild in the lower right. US 20 and US 75 continue east on the freeway ahead.
A shot of the same sign from under the bridge. I oughtta win a friggin pulitzer for this... driving 45, pointing the camera 30° behind my shoulder, out an open window... yeah baby!
Southbound on I-29. An interesting note... travelling on I-29, one never sees an I-129 sign. It is always spelled out "I-129."
Exiting to I-129 from southbound I-29.
Finally, an aerial picture of this beautifully designed intersection! From MSN's Terraserver.
