59 Now Closed

Missouri River flooding has shut down another Interstate Highway, this time between Missouri and Kansas.

Authorities have closed Highway 59 at the Highway 49 Intersection at Winthrop. This also cuts off access to the Mokan Bridge, also known as the Amelia Earhart Bridge, coming into Atchison Kansas. There's no word on when the river levels might allow for that stretch of Highway 59 to be re-opened.
