Road Closed - FeatureST. JOSEPH, Mo. – Recent and continued rain led to the closure of several routes in Northwest Missouri due to high water.

The Missouri Department of Transportation said situations can change quickly, especially during flooding. With the potential for more rain in the forecast, 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 damage to the road surface below. MoDOT is encouraging motorists to Turn Around! Don’t Drown!
