I 29 is closed between Council Bluffs and I-680. I-29 south of 80 is open until you reach Nebraska City and are detoured east/west because of another levee breach west of Hamburg. I-29 north of I-680 is open. I-80 east and west is open. There are numerous state and local highways in and out of the metro area.
The section of I-29 that is closed is only causing a minor detour if you're heading north or coming into Omaha from the north.

Even if there was some kind of catastrophic failure at FCS that required immediate response, the surrounding infrastructure is still more than able to deal with it. Omaha is still standing and chugging along just fine. The rest of the country isn't exactly paralyzed by a Japan style disaster.
People need to be more concerned about the levees around Omaha and Council Bluffs and the areas already effected by significant breaches. A few feet of water at the station is nothing compared to what is happening elsewhere in the area.
