The Buchanan County Sheriff’s Department is monitoring the area.

KQ2-TV reports deputies are patrolling that location around the clock, and will issue a citation to anyone who drives through barricades.

The Atchison County Emergency Management Office on Saturday reported that flood water remained across the highway in three locations.

It’s not known how long the major travel route will remain closed.
