U.S. Highway 59 reopened Thursday
05/16/2019
 

(KAIR)--Motorists can again utilize U.S. Highway 59.

The highway, east of Atchison, Kansas in Buchanan County, Missouri, reopened Thursday afternoon.

According to social media posts from Atchison County Emergency Management and the Buchanan County Sheriff’s Department, the highway is reduced to one lane, with east and westbound motorists being guided by traffic signals.

The Missouri Department of Transportation, in a release Thursday afternoon, said that’s because flood water remains over one lane of traffic.

The highway closed May 8 due to flooding, which left water over the roadway in several locations.

The closing came after the highway reopened in April after being shut down in March due to flooding.
