I-29 reopens after blizzard-like conditions

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

The Missouri Department of Transportation has reopened Interstate 29 from its junction with I-229 in St. Joseph to the Iowa state line.

MoDOT closed the interstate because they said travel in the area was dangerous after the season's first major winter storm.

Because of continuing heavy snowfall in the area, they also urged motorists not to travel unless absolutely necessary.

MoDOT said crews are out in full force plowing snow off major highways.

The American Red Cross has shelters in place for drivers at the Ramada Inn in St. Joseph, at the First Christian Church in Mound City and the United Methodist Church in Rock Port.

All commercial weigh stations in the area on I-29, U.S. Highway 36 and I-35 are open to the public as emergency warming shelters.
