HWY 59 Now Open

With flood waters dropping, MoDOT has now re-opened Highway 59 near St. Joseph.

The highway between Route 45 and Atchison Kansas was being worked on for the last couple of weeks, preparing for traffic. The more than 3 miles section of Highway 59 had been closed since June 27th because of the Missouri River flooding. A warning to drivers even though 59 is back open you could still have delays on the Amelia Earhart Bridge at Atchison Kansas, as KDOT crews are repairing that bridge deck now through mid-December. The bridge is down to one lane of traffic.
