Flooding closes many routes across northwest Missouri

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – Last night’s storms and continued rain today have saturated the ground in northwest Missouri. Rivers and streams are full and with nowhere else to go, the accumulating water has collected on some highways, prompting their closure.

Crews from the Missouri Department of Transportation, working with law enforcement and regional emergency services are monitoring many areas for rising waters. 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!

As waters recede and MoDOT crews are able to asses that there is no damage to the road surface from the floodwaters, they will reopen routes to traffic.

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.
