Hwy 59 fully reopened Monday

(KAIR)--U.S. Highway 59, east of Atchison, Kansas, in Buchanan County, Missouri, has fully reopened.

That word is delivered in a news release issued Monday morning by the Missouri Department of Transportation.

According to the release, the highway is open from Rushville, Missouri, to Atchison, Kansas.

On Thursday, the highway was reopened to one lane of traffic, with traffic signals directing motorists through the area due to flood waters continuing to cover one lane of the highway at that time.

The roadway was fully closed March 21 due to flooding. That closure also included the Amelia Earhart Memorial Bridge, connecting Atchison to Buchanan County.

The bridge has also since reopened.

The closing left motorists rerouted, and caused concern for Atchison leaders due to the local economic impact.
