JEFFERSON CITY – In consultation with the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Missouri Department of Transportation determined Interstate 29 from its junction with I-229 (mile marker 56) in St. Joseph, Mo., to the Iowa State Line must close immediately 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.orgor 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.
