HOWARD COUNTY - Missouri Department of Transportation officials have closed Route 240 between Davis and Morrison in Fayette due to the collapse of a second story building located at 116 North Church Street. The roof of adjacent building 118 North Church Street also collapsed.
The collapsed buildings were caused by heavy snow, leaving debris on the roadway. The road is closed for the safety of motorists until city officials determine that these collapsed buildings no longer pose a threat to motorists using the roadway. Fayette officials will decide how to procede tomorrow.
No injuries have been reported. MoDOT has set up detour signs around the area.
