(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.
