"The decision was made due to water that was going to go over the road further north near Craig, Missouri," said Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Jake Angle. "Water is predicted to go over the road much sooner than we anticipated."

The patrol said water has overtopped levees further north in the Watson and Corning areas.

I-29 was already shut down from Rock Port (MM110) to the Missouri/Iowa border.
