(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) I-29 north of St. Joseph is closed, again.

Almost two hours after MoDOT announced the opening of the interstate, I-29 was closed once again to traffic because of water over the road north of the Missouri-Iowa border.

Traffic is being rerouted at U.S. Route 71 (mile marker 57).

Motorists can expect delays and should choose a different route at their earliest possible turn-off point.

I-29 detour information:
• Kansas City area thru traffic - use I-35 to Iowa
• St. Joseph area thru traffic - use U.S. Route 71 north
• Local traffic is able to utilize I-29 to reach their homes and businesses by either going north on U.S. Route 71 and west on U.S. Route 59 or northbound I-229 to northbound I-29.

The forecast for today will be very similar to yesterday, but just a couple degrees warmer although we are still staying relatively cool for this time in August. The air quality is much better today with the haze starting to clear out of the area. Tonight will be cool and calm with lows in the mid 60s and light winds. There is a slight chance for isolated showers tonight and tomorrow afternoon, although most of the area should stay dry. Dry and sunny conditions continue into the weekend as temperatures start to warm up again. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and then start to climb into the 90s as we head into the weekend.
