LATEST: Flooding closes stretch of WB I-44 at Rolla

Wednesday, 07 August 2013 04:32 Published in Local News

Westbound I-44 is closed for 14 miles between mile markers 172 - 186 between Rolla and Waynesville due to flooding. 

Floodwaters from the Gasconade River have closed all lanes of Interstate 44 from mile marker 172 to mile marker 186 near Jerome in Phelps County.

Motorists and commercial motor carriers traveling eastbound on I-44 are asked to exit at mile marker 69 and take Route 360 to Route 60 at Springfield to Route 63 at Cabool to get back on to I-44 at Rolla. Travelers westbound on I-44 should take Route 63 at Rolla to Route 60 at Cabool to Route 360 to get back on to I-44 west of Springfield. 

The Missouri Department of Transportation has put up barriers at the closures, as well as signs to mark the detours. 

“We will continue to monitor these areas until the floodwaters recede,” said MoDOT Central District Engineer David Silvester. 

Drivers are encouraged to check MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map, located at www.modot.org, or call the department’s toll free number, 1-888-ASK-MODOT, to get updated information on road conditions. 

Motorists should take extra care in their travels during this time and never attempt to get around roadway barricades or drive across flooded roadways. MoDOT also recommends allowing extra travel time if detours are necessary. 

An evacuation order is in effect in Waynesville near Fort Leonard Wood where a young boy was swept away by flood waters and killed yesterday and a woman, believed to be his mother, remains missing. 

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has declared a state of emergency in  central and southern Missouri where more heavy rain fell overnight and more than 100 homeowners watched in vain as water inundated their homes. The area already swamped by flash flooding yesterday (Tuesday) is again under a flash flood watch until 10 a.m.  

 In the KTRS listening area that includes St. Francois, St. Genevieve and Washington Counties in Missouri, and Randolph County in Illinois.  The National Weather Service reports that the heaviest rainfall is again just northeast of the Waynesville and Fort Leonard Wood areas, but Farmington, Eldin, Rolla and Ironton are also being inundated.
