The Missouri Department of Transportation is reminding motorists to be on guard for flooded roads.

Several highways across the area have water over the driving surface and have been closed.

Drivers should also use extra caution when driving on wet roads. Slow down to avoid skidding and hydroplaning, leave extra stopping space, and always turn headlights on whenever wipers are needed.

MoDOT advises all drivers to plan their route ahead of time and know what roads are flooded before getting on the road.

Flood closures and traffic conditions are available by using the Traveler Information Map or by calling 1-888-ASK-MODOT.
