ROGERSVILLE, Mo. — Widespread flooding across southern Missouri  has prompted more than a hundred roads to close such as this intersection of Highway 60 and Highway 125 in Rogersville. 

Both westbound lanes remain closed to flooding Monday morning.  Westbound traffic is being directed onto one of the eastbound lanes, putting traffic head-to-head in one lane for each direction.

Another major problem area is just northeast of Lebanon, where record-breaking flooding at the Gasconade River has shut down I-44 in both directions.
East bound traffic being diverted at Highway F and westbound at Highway 63.

The Gasconade River reached 35.2 feet Sunday afternoon.
Its record before that..was 34.9 feet.

MoDOT expects water levels to rise up to 37 feet before receding.

MoDOT also says this part of I-44 will be closed down for a while as they make sure that there is no structural damage from the flooding.

These flood waters have of course led to many road closures in the area. You can stay up to date on those closures via the MoDOT’s Travel Map.  There are still hundreds of roads closed throughout the state.
