HANNIBAL | Street and highway crews have watched as the first winter storm of 2020 was approaching.
“It looks like we'll get quite a bit of rain, especially to the south. There may be a chance of flash flooding. Then starting Friday night or Saturday there may be a little bit of ice and a couple of inches of snow,” said Brian Untiedt, area engineer for the Missouri Department of Transportation's Northeast District.
Those details were known Wednesday afternoon and Untiedt said MoDOT crews were preparing snow plows and making plans to keep highways open in 17 counties stretching from the Missouri River to the Iowa border.
“We have 165 trucks to take care of the roads and we have about 10,000 lane miles that we plow,” Untiedt said.
LOUISIANA, Mo. – For years the construction of a new Champ Clark Bridge has brought sightseers to Louisiana's riverfront. On Friday the attention will be on the old bridge when explosives bring down two sections of the structure.
