UPDATE: Continued Rain Brings Flooding and Closed Roads to Northwest Missouri

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – One road has reopened and several others have closed due to high water across northwest Missouri. Route V in Andrew and DeKalb counties has reopened, while others in Buchanan, Caldwell, Carroll, Chariton, Daviess, DeKalb, Grundy and Livingston counties have closed. Please see the list below for all roads closed due to flooding.

Situations can change quickly, especially during flooding. More roads could flood without warning. Motorists are reminded to stay alert and to not drive through any water over the roadway. It only takes six inches of water (or less!) to lose control of your vehicle and possibly be swept into rising floodwaters. Any time there is water over the roadway, there may be unseen damage to the road surface below. Do not drive through water over a roadway or around construction barricades. MoDOT encourages all motorists to Turn Around! Don’t Drown!

To keep up with the latest road closures for flooding, incidents and roadwork, the Missouri Department of Transportation provides a Traveler Information Map at www.modot.org. Motorists are advised to check the map or call 1-888 ASK MODOT (1-888-275-6636) before heading out to plan alternate routes, as needed.
