The Department of Public Works and MoDOT are monitoring the Platte River at I-29. Most rural roads west of 45 Hwy from Weston to the county line are impassable.

We have 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.
