BATES CITY, Mo. — MoDOT shut down westbound I-70 at Bates City for several hours Monday due to dangerous driving conditions.
Crews closed the highway at mile marker 31.6 just past Route Z/D just before 8:30 a.m. The interstate reopened later Monday morning.
Missouri State Highway Patrol said at least eight vehicles slid off the road. Two semitrailers were blocking the road and a utility truck overturned.
“Please use caution. Travel is not advised,” MoDOT tweeted.
No one was injured in any of the incidents.
This area is still CLOSED for an unknown length of time. Fortunately, there were no injuries. Law enforcement are working to help clear the scene. Westbound 70 remains closed in the area for now.
