Part of 9 Highway closed in Riverside due to flooding

RIVERSIDE, Mo. — Part of 9 Highway in Riverside, Missouri has been closed due to flood water on the roadway.

Brent Holland with the Riverside Police Department said 9 Highway southbound has been closed at the Riverway Boulevard exit due to water over the roadway further south.

Just before 9 p.m. the Riverside Fire Department reported the northbound lanes of 9 Highway just past Briarcliff had water on them and were being closed.

At this time traffic is being diverted to NW Platte Road to detour around the closure.

Holland said urged those in the area to use caution when operating in the area.
