(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) All ramps at U.S. Route 36 and Route 759 are now open after MoDOT officials said special equipment had to be brought in to help remove a commercial vehicle stuck on the ramp in that area.


MoDOT said the ramp was closed for several hours until the vehicle was eventually freed.

Both the on and off ramps at Highway 36 on the Missouri River Bridge were closed earlier Monday as the semi made its way across the bridge. However, these ramps are now back open.

Crews from the Missouri Department of Transportation and the Missouri State Highway Patrol worked to clear the vehicle.

We have had rain off and on this Friday afternoon across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. Scattered showers will continue off and on through the evening and overnight hours. A few showers could linger through the day Saturday but the rain will be lighter than today and much more scattered. Temperatures will slowly start to warm Sunday into Monday as sunshine returns and conditions start to dry out. Another cold front is headed our way Monday night and that will bring us a chance for rain and possibly some snow into Tuesday morning as the colder air surges into our area. Temperatures look to stay unseasonably cool through the rest of the next week.
