Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) crews have cleaned up Missouri Route 79 after the water receded and the highway is now open after being closed due to flooding.
Please drive carefully. Never drive through flooded roads, always wear your seat belt and put your phone down while driving. MoDOT personnel thank you for your patience.
There are still numerous roads flooded in Missouri. Please refer to the online traveler map at www.modot.org for updates.
