I-44 Closed at Jerome
Numerous Other State Routes Closed

Westbound Interstate 44 near Jerome in Phelps County (mile marker 172-176) is closed due to flooding. Jerome is located just west of Rolla.

Motorists leaving the St. Louis area are advised to use Interstate 70 or Route 50 for their travels. The detour for drivers closer to the closed area is Route 63 south at Rolla to Route 60 west to Route 65 north in Springfield back to I-44. Travelers using detour routes should expect delays.

In addition, the eastbound lanes of Interstate 44 near Hazelgreen in Laclede County remain closed. About 280 roads statewide are closed due to flooding.

The Missouri Department of Transportation has put up barriers at the closures, as well as signs to mark the detours.

Drivers are encouraged to check MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map, located at www.modot.org, or call the department’s toll free number, 1-888-ASK-MODOT, to get updated information on road conditions.

Motorists should take extra care in their travels during this time and never attempt to get around roadway barricades or drive across flooded roadways. MoDOT also recommends allowing extra travel time if detours are necessary.
