(KAIR)--U.S. Highway 59, east of Atchison, in Buchanan County, Missouri, has reopened.

That's according to a news release issued Thursday afternoon by the Missouri Department of Transportation which said the highway is open from Rushville to Atchison, including the Amelia Earhart Bridge. 

The release stated that due to water remaining over one lane of the highway, traffic will be narrowed to one lane and directed through the area with temporary traffic signals.

The roadway was closed March 21 due to flooding.

The closing left motorists rerouted, and caused concern for Atchison leaders due to the local economic impact.
