Flooding Closes I-44 at Jerome

JEROME, Mo. – All eastbound and westbound lanes of Interstate 44 near Jerome in Phelps County (mile marker 172) are closed due to flooding. Jerome is located just west of Rolla.

The detour for motorists and commercial motor carriers traveling westbound on I-44 is Route 63 to Route 60 to Route 360 to I-44. For eastbound travelers, the detour is Route 360 to Route 60 to Route 63 to I-44.

In addition, all lanes of Interstate 44 in each direction at Hazelgreen in Laclede County (mile marker 144) are closed. Other major road closures include U.S. 60 at Rogersville, which has one lane of traffic moving in each direction (head to head); and U.S. 61, which is closed north of Troy at the Cuivre River. Motorists must use alternate routes around U.S. 61.

Travelers using detour routes should expect delays and longer travel times.

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.
