I-29 remains closed, north of St. Joseph

(KLZA)--Travel in northwest Missouri and southwest Iowa continues to be affected by flooding, debris and damage left behind.

For over three weeks, I-29 has been shutdown north of St. Joseph because of Missouri River flooding. Now that water has receded, crews from the Missouri Department of Transportation and the Iowa Department of Transportation are working on evaluating and repairing pavement damage.

Crews from both states are working to remove flood debris from the road as well.

MoDOT in a statement says that the extended closure of the interstate is taking a toll on travelers and local residents. More than 12,000 travelers use that route daily.

In addition, travelers do not have access to several roads west of I-29 in Holt and Atchison counties due to flooding and damage. These include U.S. Routes 159 and 136, commonly referred to as the Rulo and Brownville Missouri River Crossings which are heavily damaged and remain closed.

There is no word on when the interstate may reopen.
