MoDOT reminds drivers to never driver around barriers put up in front of flooded roads. Also, be cautious of driving on wet roads; slow down to avoid hydroplaning, leave extra space to brake, and turn your headlights on if windshield wipers are needed.

More details on flooded road closures and live traffic conditions are also available on MoDOT's Traveler Information Map or by calling 1-888-ASK-MODOT (275-6636). Safety tips are available at modot.org/central-district-flooding-information.
