The Missouri Department of Transportation is closing more roads in response to flood conditions brought by heavy rain over the weekend.

MoDOT Spokesperson Linda Wilson Horne said I-55 near the Meramec River will be closed at 12:00 a.m. Wednesday due to flooding, cutting off Jefferson County from St. Louis.

“We are telling people you have to decide what side of the river you’ll be on because you’re going to stay there a couple of days," she said.
