MARIES COUNTY - Floodwaters from the Gasconade River have caused a closure of all lanes on Route 63 south of Vienna in Maries County. Motorists and commercial motor carriers traveling on southbound Route 63 should use Route 50 to Route 28 at Rosebud then return to Route 63 near Vichy. Travelers northbound on Route 63 are asked to exit onto Route 28 through Owensville and then take Route 50 near Rosebud to get back on Route 63.
"We will continue to monitor these areas until the floodwaters recede," said MoDOT Central District Engineer David Silvester.
The Missouri Department of Transportation has set up barriers at the closures
Drivers are encouraged to check MoDOT's Traveler Information Map, located at http://maps.modot.mo.gov/timi/ or call the department's toll free number at 1-888-ASK-MODOT, to get updated on road conditions.
Motorists should take extra care in their travels during this time and never attempt to get around roadway barriers or drive across flooded roadways. MoDOT also recommends allowing extra travel time if detours are necessary.
