Motorists are encouraged to use extreme caution and plan alternate routes.

MoDOT also offers the following driving tips that can help avoid delays and unsafe conditions during rainy weather:

  • Turn on your headlights when windshield wipers are needed. It's the law.
  • Slow down, use caution, and don't use cruise control when driving in rain to avoid skidding and hydroplaning.
  • Leave plenty of following distance behind the vehicle in front of yours.
  • Never move or drive around barricades placed on roadways due to high water. Barricades are a warning designed to protect you from an unsafe condition. You can put yourself at serious risk if you proceed into a flooded section of road.
  • If a road is closed, find another route.
  • Do NOT drive into high water. Stop and turn around. Notify local police, the sheriff or the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
  • "Turn Around - Don't Drown" as highways become impassable.
