The Missouri Department of Transportation is announcing several road closures due to flooding from heavy rain last night. [Tuesday]
MoDot says Route N in Shelby County is closed at Salt River Bridge, approximately 4 miles north of U.S. 36.
In Monroe County Route A is closed at Crooked Creek Bridge, around 1 miles south of the Route WW and A Junction.
Third Street Missouri Route 79 in Louisiana between Maryland and Delaware Streets is also closed due to more than 2 inches of water across the road. It is likely Misosuri 79 will close south of Louisiana to Route D, as well as south of Clarksville as the Mississippi River water levels rise over the next few days.
MoDOT reminds drivers to never drive through roads covered with water.
