Highway 136 Opening

October 15th.

That's the target date for flood damaged Highway 136 in Atchison county Missouri to be repaired and back open to traffic. MoDOT St. Joseph headquarters says a Leavenworth contractor has agreed to work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to repair a nearly 2 mile stretch of 136, which runs from the west side of Interstate 29 to Route D in Atchison county, that's west of Rockport as you are driving toward Brownville Nebraska. MoDOT says this stretch is the first part of a multi-phase project to fix 4 major gaps in Highway 136 in Atchison county Missouri by that October deadline. Engineers have also identified a 600 foot erosion hole on Highway 136 nearby but say they are still waiting for more water to recede before repairs on that can start.
