Drier conditions allowed several Northwest Missouri routes to reopen after closing yesterday due to high water. Routes in Carroll, Daviess, and Livingston counties remain closed, however.
Situations can change quickly, especially during flooding. 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 by rising floodwaters. Any time there is water over the roadway, there may be damage to the road surface below.
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/northwest.
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.
