CARROLLTON, Mo. – Due to the return of high water across the road, crews from the Missouri Department of Transportation closed Missouri Route 10 today west of Carrollton. The road is closed until further notice between County Road 191 and County Road 231. Drivers must use another route. Do NOT move barricades.
MoDOT is urging everyone to closely monitor conditions in their area, heed all evacuation notices, and never enter a water-covered roadway or drive around barricades. Just a few inches of flood waters can force a vehicle off the roadway. In addition, it is not uncommon for roadways and shoulders to be damaged when flooded, creating unsafe conditions for motorists
Flooding may occur with little or no notice. Even though you have a planned route, you may come upon water-covered roads. Missouri Department of Transportation crews and our partners are monitoring road conditions closely, but floodwaters can rise quickly, before our crews and other emergency services are able to place barricades across the roadway.
If you come upon a flooded roadway without barricades, do NOT drive through the water. Pull over to a safe location and call the MoDOT’s 24-hour Customer Service line at 888 ASK MODOT (1-888-275-6636) to report it.
