A water pumping operation has helped to reopen the lower lanes of Highway 67 in West Alton.  The Missouri Department of Transportation began pumping water Monday afternoon in order to open up the lower lanes of U.S. 67 in West Alton between the Clark Bridge and Highway 94.  The pumps have been working around the clock ever since.


The southbound lanes had been closed since December 27 due to flooding.  The lanes reopened earlier this morning.  MoDot was assisted by the Illinois Department of Transportation and the US Army Corp of Engineers.


From the Missouri Department of Transportation, these roads remain closed due to flooding:


St. Charles County


Route B


Route C


Route 94 from Feltes to Bradshaw
