Route B Flooding- MoDOT Travelers Map

MoDOT shifted traffic on Route 67 near the Lewis Bridge and Clark Bridge in West Alton Wednesday due to floodwaters rising high near the southbound lane. The southbound lanes shifted into the northbound lanes before evening rush.

Crews closed one lane in each direction to shift traffic. 

The lane shift will remain in place until the river levels are no longer rising near the southbound lanes. 

Both directions of the road from Route C to Seeburger Road are currently closed, according to MoDOT. The roadway borders the Mississippi River and the Dardenne Creek.

A section of Highway 94 has been shut down between Alta Villa Road and U.S. 67 near West Alton

It is unknown how long the roadways will be closed. 

On Thursday, Governor Mike Parson declared a state of emergency due to the worsening flood conditions along the Missouri and Mississippi River systems. A mandatory evacuation was issued for parts of western Missouri as the water continues to rise
