MoDOT reopened Route 141 under I-44 Monday afternoon, earlier than expected.

On Sunday, MoDOT said the roadway would reopen before the Tuesday morning rush. MoDOT said water was expected to recede sometime early Monday, but crews had a lot of work to complete to get the roadway ready for traffic.

That work was completed just before 4 p.m., and the road was reopened.
