High water closes county roads


The following Platte County roads have been closed as of Monday, May 7 at 2 p.m. due to high water:


Sexton Rd. 100’ east of Bee Creek Blvd. intersection

Bee Creek Blvd. 100’ South of Sexton Rd. intersection

Woodruff Rd. 1 mile west of 371 Hwy

Algiers Rd. Mellon Bridge Rd. to 1 mile north

Mellon Bridge Rd. East end

Woolston Rd. West end – in river bottoms

Edgerton Jct Rd. between DD and Buena Vista

Union Mill Rd. North of Edgerton

Dicks Creek Rd. intersection of E Hwy

Cockriel Rd. near Dick’s Creek Rd.


E Hwy between Camden Point and Ridgely

B Hwy 2 miles north of 92 Hwy100’ South of Sexton Rd. intersection

KK Hwy near B Hwy

9 Hwy east of Parkville

The county has plotted these locations graphically to look at alternate routes. At this time we don’t believe that any residents have been isolated. Residents should contact MoDOT or a city directly to identify which of their roads that have been closed.

Public works is continually monitoring the rising water levels and damage caused by the water. Our entire maintenance crew is on call for emergencies. Please contact either the sherriff or the public works department with information regarding any other unidentified problems associated with the floodwaters.

Drivers should not enter water on roads. Moving water is extremely dangerous and still water can be deceivingly deep.
