The Missouri Department of Transportation has closed Interstate 29 at Rock Port (MM 110) at the Missouri/Iowa border due to flooding in Iowa.

Anyone wanting to use I-29 northbound should use I-35 and then I-80 into Iowa. For more information visit:

Here are some important safety reminders:

  • Don’t drive through any flooded areas. A few extra minutes for a detour could lead to a life saved.
  • MoDOT reminds motorists it only takes six inches of water (or less!) to lose control of your vehicle and possibly be swept into rising floodwaters.
  • Any time there is water over the roadway, there may be unseen damage to the road surface below.
  • Stay alert and do not drive through water over a roadway or around construction barricades. MoDOT encourages all motorists to Turn Around! Don’t Drown!

Full closures of I-29 are in place at

US 136 at Rock Port, Mo. (Exit 110); and

Travelers already on I-29 North

Drivers who are currently heading north on I-29 should use US 71 North north of St. Joseph to I-35 if possible.
