(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.
