I-80 in NE & IA

Reviewing our route home from Yellowstone and wondering:

1. At Omaha do you take I-80 straight through or I-680 around?

2. At Des Moines straight through I-80?

And I'm curious about US 30 from Grand Island, NE across Iowa to get off the super slab and then l-380 st Cedar Rapids back down to I-80.

Anyone with experience on these roads care to comment?

In Omaha, stay on 80. In Des Moines 80 meets up with 35, and runs together from the west side to the north east corner, but follow signs for 80 East. I have been on parts of hiway 30, but cant give good information on the whole route.

Just stick with I-80 in both cities. Traffic shouldn't be a problem. Most of the Midwest prairie cities have pretty well defined rush hours just about when you'd expect them, and little traffic problem otherwise.

US30 through most of the Midwest is the route of the old Lincoln Highway, one of the first designated highways to span the country back in 1913. Stop and visit. You'll see a host of great little towns-- and people!

Agreed about staying on I-80 in both.

wdw.......google maps with street view + good sam trip planner + rand McNally 7735 gps + state highway websites for construction = fairly enjoyable, effective "tripping".....................best part, you can actually "drive" the route on google maps

Agree with PPs on the city routes. As for Highway 30, it will be much slower but quite lovely. Lots of hills, small towns (check out local museums), and a general relaxed feeling. So it really depends on your time constraints.

If you have time, stop in Des Moines and take a tour of the state capitol building. It is totally amazing, and we have visited many state capitols, and none could even approach Iowa's. The incredible beauty of its interior is almost unbeliveable.
