Winter Weather Compilation

In consultation with the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Missouri Department of Transportation determined Interstate 29 from its junction with Route 116 (mile marker 30) north of St. Joseph, Mo., to the Iowa State Line has closed until further notice.

Drivers on I-29 should exit the highway at the next exit where they can find shelter. Continued travel in the area is dangerous. MoDOT also states that travel in the Northwest Missouri and Kansas City areas is not advised due to severe conditions from this season's first major winter storm. Because of continuing heavy snowfall in the area, motorists are urged not to travel unless absolutely necessary. MoDOT crews are out in full force plowing snow off of major highways. Regardless, MoDOT says the winter weather makes travel hazardous and urges motorists stay put until the snow stops and roads are clear. Drivers can find current road conditions by visiting MoDOT's Traveler Information Map at www.modot.org or by calling toll-free, 1-888-ASK MODOT (888-275-6636). The map is updated continuously when bad weather hits, and the toll free line is answered 24-hours a day. All commerical weigh station in the Troop H area on Interstate 29, U.S. Highway 36 and Interstate 35 are open to the public as emergency warming shelters. The American Red Cross has set up warming stations for motorists at the request of the Missouri State High Patrol. Motorists traveling along Interstate 35 or Highway 36 can stop at the Cameron United Methodist Church at 201 North Pine Street in Cameron. Three warming shelters have been set up along Interstate 29. Those include the Ramada Inn Ballroom at the intersection of Interstate 29 and Frederick Boulevard in St. Joseph. In Mound City, a warming center has been set up at the First Christian Church at 402 East 5th Street. In Rock Port, motorists can stop at the United Methodist Church at 211 West Opp Street. A warming center in Maryville has been set up at the Laura Street Baptist Church.
