U.S. 54 at Louisiana, MO 79 at Hannibal back open


Water has receded from U.S. 54 on the Illinois side of the Mississippi River at the Champ Clark Bridge, and IDOT and MoDOT crews opened the road to traffic on Sunday.

The bridge was closed last week due to flooding from the Mississippi River.

MO 79 south of Hannibal opened earlier this afternoon after being closed also from Mississippi River flooding.
