The snow-covered roads have turned deadly in Missouri.

One person was killed in an accident that involved a semi truck. The accident was near the Jefferson exit. All lanes of eastbound I-44 were closed as crews cleaned up the scene. It is not known what caused the accident.

MoDOT officials are still urging residents to stay off the roads--crews continue their work to remove snow from all major routes in the metro area.

   Flooding closed Interstate 44 at mile marker 172 near the city of Jerome early Wednesday morning.  As of Wednesday night it was still closed, but MoDOT officials say it could reopen Thursday morning.

   In addition, Missouri Route 63 is now closed in two locations - south of Vienna in Maries County and at Westphalia in Osage County - further complicating detour routes.

   Motorists are encouraged to use U.S. 60, I-70 or U.S. 36 as alternate routes. This is especially important for commercial motor vehicle traffic approaching Missouri from other states.

   Motorists traveling on Route 63 to destinations south of Vienna should take U.S. 50 to Route 28 to U.S. 63. Those traveling to areas north of Vienna should use Routes U and E to get around the closure.

   National Weather Service predictions indicate water will overtake the lanes of U.S. 50 at Mount Sterling by mid-morning on Thursday, making travel in the area even more difficult.

   “We don’t know for certain when flooded roadways will reopen or what additional flooding might occur,” said Travis Koestner, assistant district engineer of MoDOT’s Central District. “We appreciate motorists' patience as we monitor these roadways and ask motorists not to drive around barricades or attempt to drive through water.”

   When the water recedes, MoDOT will inspect pavement and bridges for safety before opening highways for public use.
